In recent years, with the rapid development of China’s economy, the application of metal materials has played an important role in China’s economic development. In the production and research process of metal materials, the analysis of material physical properties has received widespread attention. The method of material physical analysis provides people with a more convenient and reliable basis for studying the properties of metals. In people’s production and life, metal materials have become an indispensable part of people’s lives, and people’s higher standards of living have prompted the production of metal materials to seek further upgrades and innovations. The paper makes the following analysis on the application of material physical property analysis methods in the production and research of metal materials, and puts forward several investigations and suggestions for the majority of workers engaged in metal material production.

In order to overcome various problems in traditional experimental teaching, a multimedia interactive teaching method was introduced in the School of Materials Science and Engineering of Southwest Petroleum University, combining modern teaching methods such as virtual simulation technology, students will be taught more intuitive and vivid experimental skills. Practice shows that all of those can both improve the active thinking and practical ability of students, and promote the development of experimental teaching in the material specialty, at the same time effectively improves the school’ social reputation.

The research on the effect of millisecond fast compression on the structure and properties of materials is still in its infancy, it is of great scientific significance to improve the experimental technology of rapid compression and to continuously and deeply carry out the research on the high-pressure physical properties of materials and the preparation of new materials under rapid compression. The paper introduces 4 kinds of millisecond-level rapid compression experimental techniques, briefly describes the application of rapid compression technology in materials science, including preparing amorphous materials, measuring Grüneisen parameters and W-J parameters, and studying phase transition kinetics.

Materials are the basis for human being survival and social development. To keep abreast with the increasing needs from all aspects of human society, there are huge needs in the development of advanced materials as well as high-efficiency but low-cost manufacturing strategies that are both sustainable and tunable. Synthetic biology, a new engineering principle taking gene regulation and engineering design as the core, greatly promotes the development of life sciences. This discipline has also contributed to the development of material sciences and will continuously bring new ideas to future new material design. In this paper, we review recent advances in applications of synthetic biology in material sciences, with the focus on how synthetic biology could enable synthesis of new polymeric biomaterials and inorganic materials, phage display and directed evolution of proteins relevant to materials development, living functional materials, engineered bacteria-regulated artificial photosynthesis system as well as applications of gene circuits for material sciences.
