Abstract : This technical report documents the WL/MLPJ Mini-Symposium on Computational Materials Science Research held during 15-16 July 1992 at the Materials Directorate, Wright-Patterson AFB. The purpose of the meeting was to inform collaborators of scope of work and ensure complementary nature, reduce direct overlap of work while looking for uncovered subjects, produce cross fertilization of ideas, brainstorm coverage of relevant AF interests, critique our work, and provide students a chance to present current work to a friendly audience. The topics discussed included properties determination, for example, as summarized by Dr. W. Wade Adams/MLPJ on the prediction of mechanical properties, structure-to-property relationships, for example for star and oligomeric siloxanes as reported by Dr.Barry Farmer/University of Virginia, biopolymers structure determination and prediction, with aspects of biomolecular structure determination discussed by Dr. Ruth Pachter/MLPJ, macromolecular simulation, for example, for high-temperature properties of PBZT fibers, as presented by Dr. Ken McTurk/Akron University, and algorithms and other modeling applications, with parallel computation discussed by Prof. Gary Lamont/AFIT. Numerous posters were presented, and scientific interactions led to collaborations and fostering of new ideas. (AN)
