For the design of machines and mechanisms in various branches of modern engineering (in particular, when high temperatures, high speeds, high pressure, etc. are applied), we need new materials with many different, even contradictory properties, depending on the specifications of the designer. The research worker in the science of materials can only solve such problems efficiently and quickly by a rational synthesis of materials with predetermined complex properties. For this, he must have a wide knowledge of solid-state physics, which can show him how to predict the properties of the material prepared. He must also be able to select that variant of the most flexible technique which makes it possible to synthesize or design a material combining the components with given characteristics into a homogeneous, and sometimes also into a complex, composite.
There is still another aspect of the given problem, information and its In material science information is not only very complicated pocessing. because of the many sources, but also because to understand the data we must have more and more additional information on other sciences, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and mechanics.
Therefore, the material research scientist and the designer should not obtain the information in the original form, even in a systematized one, but as data treated and analyzed by highly specialized experts and published in monographs or in reference books. Such a monograph should include a sufficiently complete and rigid representation of the physics involved in each problem, and the fundamental theoretical concepts in the given field, and also a detailed and exhaustive description of the production of both the starting substances and materials and the main applications of the materials. Finally, it must have an exhaustive and detailed bibliography, with references describing the properties of the materials of the given group, and the range of their application.
