The linkage between material structure and properties has been the focus of materials science and engineering from the early days of engineered materials. The approach for this understanding had previously been substantially by empirical methods of producing material samples, testing and assessing observations. Today, the focus is squarely on the identification of physics-based mechanisms that drive relationships between structure and property. Similarly, efforts to understand structure evolution during processing of materials was largely by empirical trial-and-error methods. Today, the development and application of models that can predict structure evolution and associated resultant mechanical properties has allowed for a formalized process for designing and developing materials and associated manufacturing processes for unique product requirements. This formalized approach can be depicted with an “Olson Diagram” that communicates the critical mechanisms and physics-based models required for any given material system. This talk will review the elements of the “Olson Diagram” and how it can be applied to establish an enhanced integrated engineering framework for materials, manufacturing, and component and system design.
