Description

Integrated Design of Multiscale, Multifunctional Materials and Products is the first of its type to consider not only design of materials, but concurrent design of materials and products. In other words, materials are not just selected on the basis of properties, but the composition and/or microstructure iw designed to satisfy specific ranged sets of performance requirements. This book presents the motivation for pursuing concurrent design of materials and products, thoroughly discussing the details of multiscale modeling and multilevel robust design and provides details of the design methods/strategies along with selected examples of designing material attributes for specified system performance. It is intended as a monograph to serve as a foundational reference for instructors of courses at the senior and introductory graduate level in departments of materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering and civil engineering who are interested in next generation systems-based design of materials.

Key Features

  • First of its kind to consider not only design of materials, but concurrent design of materials and products
  • Treatment of uncertainty via robust design of materials
  • Integrates the "materials by design approach" of Olson/Ques Tek LLC with the "materials selection" approach of Ashby/Granta
  • Distinquishes the processes of concurrent design of materials and products as an overall systems design problem from the field of multiscale modeling
  • Systematic mathematical algorithms and methods are introduced for robust design of materials, rather than ad hoc heuristics--it is oriented towards a true systems approach to design of materials and products

Readership

Materials engineers, mechanical engineers, design engineers, materials developers and suppliers, senior/introductory graduate level students

About the Authors

David McDowell

Dr. McDowell joined Georgia Tech in 1983 and holds a dual appointment in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Materials Science and Engineering. He served as the Director of the Mechanical Properties Research Laboratory from 1992-2012. In 2012 he was named Founding Director of the Institute for Materials (IMat), one of Georgia Tech’s interdisciplinary Research Institutes charged with fostering an innovative ecosystem for research and education. He has served as Executive Director of IMat since 2013. His research focuses on the development of physically-based, microstructure-sensitive constitutive models for nonlinear and time-dependent behavior of materials, with emphasis on wrought and cast metals. Topics of interest include finite strain inelasticity and defect field mechanics, microstructure-sensitive computational approaches to deformation and damage of heterogeneous materials, with emphasis on metal fatigue, atomistic and coarse-grained atomistic simulations of dislocations, dynamic deformation and failure of materials, irradiation effects on materials, and multiscale modeling with methods for uncertainty quantification. He has contributed to schemes for computational materials science and mechanics to inform systems design of materials. Applications of current interest span lightweight structural materials, materials for hot sections of aircraft gas turbine engines, titanium alloys, ferritic and austenitic alloys, and nanocrystalline materials, among others.
