New physical insights from in-situ characterization experiments can guide the alloy and microstructure design efforts, to expand the property spectrum of steels, titanium alloys, high entropy alloys, and other metallic materials. In this talk, focusing on a few case studies, I will be presenting new tools and methods developed in my group for this purpose. More specifically, we will review how strain partitioning and localization takes place at the micro-scale leading to damage incidents, and then discuss potential design strategies to suppress these micro-mechanisms.
