E. Stevenson, The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa Behavior of Introduction MANY DIFFERENT types of materials are used in applications where a resistance to mechanical loading is necessary. The type of material used depends strongly upon a number of factors including the type of loading that the material will experience and the environment in which the materials will be loaded. Collectively known as engineering materials (Ref 1), they can be pure elements, or they can be combinations of different elements (alloys and compounds), molecules (polymers), or phases and materials (composites).

These features combine to restrict the motion of dislocations. In comparison with metals, ceramics are considered to be intrinsically hard and brittle. Intermetallics cannot be described as being intrinsically hard or soft; however, they are typically brittle. The different mechanical properties of these materials are related to bonding. The metallic bonds in metals make dislocation motion relatively easy, whereas the highly directional ionic, covalent, and mixed bonds observed in ceramics and intermetallics present large lattice resistance to dislocation motion.
