  Other Test Information
 Phase and compositional analysis in microscopic level helped in development of new shape memory alloys (SMAs) for high temperature applications.
Oxygen analysis in the material was useful in solving problems encountered during processing of high temperature SMAs into wire forms.
Material Science Division - MSD
In many cases, the primary mechanism of failure in aero-engine components could be established unambiguously through micro-structural study, phase analysis and compositional analysis.
