Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

8 Scopus citations


The multi-institutional Steel Research Group program has pioneered a systems approach to the science-based design of high performance materials. Students in a Materials Design course have applied the methodology and data-bases to perform computer-aided conceptual designs of a wide range of alloys for specific applications. New projects are broadening capabilities to span metals, ceramics, and polymers. Advances in cognitive neuro-science define structure/property relations in the human brain offering insights for redesign of materials education to foster technological innovation.
