The following main tendencies in the evolution of metal science are described:
development of new materials with predetermined mechanical, physical and functional
properties as e.g. amorphous materials, ultra-fine-grained (including nanostructured) etc.
Advanced resource-saving technologies applied to traditional and new materials as e.g.
different schemes of thermomechanical processing, cyclic thermal treatment, cyclic
deformation treatment etc. are presented. Application of advanced techniques: laser beam, highenergy
electron-beam, plasma and simulation technique are described as well.
Keywords: advanced metallic materials; mechanical, physical and functional properties; resource-saving technologies.
