5.7.6. Advance of the United States as compared to Europe A detailed analysis of this issue for all the topics listed above would require a much longer document. So only the most striking aspects will be given. • “Micro ” and “Nano”-technology. The United States are currently doing a great research effort, also in the subfield of “microstructural applications”. The Unites States certainly has an important advantage in the following fields: • Study of advanced Al- and Ti-alloys and composite materials. Any institution or company working simultaneously on military and civilian applications, and hence having access to “military ” results for civilian applications, has a great advantage. • Implementation of advanced material models in FEcodes. This work too is strongly supported by the needs of military and nuclear industry. References There is no single review paper covering all the topics listed above. A complete literature list would be many pages long. So only a few references will be given, to allow for an estimate of the complexity of the issues depicted in the present contribution.
