Design of alloys and high efficiency structures

Keywords and Phrases

Materials by design genetic algorithm; Synergy


As the demand for new materials grows in the world, it is important to create materials that can give optimal performance for a specific application. Micro- and macro-structural features are important elements in designing materials that satisfy user-defined property requirements...The effort in this thesis deals with replacing the experimental approach of designing materials and processes with the computational approach, which optimizes the performance of processes and materials"--Abstract, leaf iv.
