Thought that starting an alloy thread would be useful - different alloys are good for different things as we all know, but what about designing them around the purpose? Seems like a smart idea to me.
​Currently, all I can think of is crystalline design - i.e, looking at it chemically and designing the crystal grain for the specific job. This is one:
​Cr2B4C3, a chemical formula for a rigid, midweight alloy that wouldn't rust but would be brittle.
