Abstract : The focus of materials process design research is to establish theories and scientific methods for in situ self improvement of the design and control of material processing using self-directed computer aided systems. The specific objectives are to: (1) generate new methods and knowledge relative to the design process, (2) integrate, synthesize and generalize new knowledge in the form of axioms, and (3) automatically incorporate this new knowledge for use in improving materials research and process control metrics (i.e., quality, time and cost). Long term the objective is to develop a language, principled in theories, for the development of virtual material processing systems and integrated, intelligent manufacturing systems across a Materials and Processing Information Highway.
