Abstract. The importance of deep knowledge of structural information in materials engineering is explained and discussed. Some basic relations, like Hall-Petch relation or linear dependency of hardness and phase composition are presented and discussed. Simultaneously, the difficulties in precise development of structure-property relationships are explained and selected examples of works devoted to structure-property relationships are discussed.
