Computational material design tools have advanced so that custom materials for specific applications can be designed and manufactured. In the case of metals, my team designs aluminum, iron, nickel, and copper (more to come) alloys using Thermo-Calc with Bayesian optimization. We design microstructures to deliver properties such as strength, conductivity, and corrosion resistance. Custom tailored materials are now practical solutions to engineering challenges, and materials engineers work on multi-disciplinary teams to deliver integrated, enhanced product designs.
