Almost all the metallurgical work done through the 1950s, including the noteworthy research on titanium, was based on the traditional experimental approach to materials. To counterbalance these cut-and-try experiments, Bert Thomas formed a Metal Science Group in 1960. Its objective was to look into the basic physics of metallurgy, some of which might not help solve problems for 20 years or more, and to try to relate phenomena to theory.
