Description

The development of new and superior materials is beneficial within industrial settings, as well as a topic of academic interest. By using computational modeling techniques, the probable application and performance of these materials can be easily evaluated.

Computational Approaches to Materials Design: Theoretical and Practical Aspects brings together empirical research, theoretical concepts, and the various approaches in the design and discovery of new materials. Highlighting optimization tools and soft computing methods, this publication is a comprehensive collection for researchers, both in academia and in industrial settings, and practitioners who are interested in the application of computational techniques in the field of materials engineering.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Ab Initio Methods
  • Computational Materials Engineering
  • Industrial Applications
  • Materials Modeling
  • Microstructure Simulation
  • Neural Networks
  • Optimization Tools
