A systems approach integrates processing/structure/property/performance relations in the conceptual design of multilevel-structured materials. Using the example of high performance alloy steels, numerical implementation of materials science principles provides a hierarchy of computational models defining subsystem design parameters which are integrated via computational thermodynamics in the comprehensive design of materials as interactive systems. Materials design class projects address application of the methods in metals, ceramics, and polymers for special applications.
