Compiles information from the world's leading experts on how best to meet the needs of designers, consumers and marketers of materials data.
18 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers from an international body of materials data professionals are divided into the following key areas:
Concurrent Engineering, Organization and Process of Materials Data -- Topics include the benefits of fitting materials property data to models; integrating test methodology, material database and material deselection strategies; and successful examples of integrating materials data into the design process.
Database and Expert System Applications: Specific Materials -- The unique properties of different alloys and a database of same are explored; as well as composite material property modeling for analysis and design; and new expert system development efforts.
Strategic Use of Existing Materials Data -- Subjects include successful materials data packaging and delivery systems; multiple uses of and object-oriented database system; and materials database use in computerized life assessment.
Materials Data Applications of Emerging Information Technologies -- The technology of artificial neural networks; actual case studies of seven methods of material data analysis and property prediction; and six major information technologies are examined.
