Abstract

A multi-institutional research program has developed a systems approach to the science-based conceptual design of materials. Within the systems framework, interdisciplinary research is prioritized and organized to provide mechanistic design models and databases supporting the achievement of specified material property objectives. Model output is integrated by computational thermodynamics to predict material prototype compositions capable of achieving required microstructures under prescribed processing conditions. Design class projects have successfully applied the approach to high performance martensitic alloy steels for a range of materials user needs including bearing and gear applications. The approach is being extended to ceramics and polymers as well as shape-memory-based biomimetic self-healing composites.
