About the Center

The CCMD fosters long-term partnerships with industry and government laboratories to develop the emerging technology of materials design. Material design is a new paradigm in which the usual route of selecting existing materials for applications, including prototype design and testing, is replaced or enhanced by concurrent design of material and applications. We explore methods for development of materials property databases and extend systems engineering design methods to design materials with the optimal functionality for each application. The CCMD offers a venue for bringing together state-of-the-art computational materials science modeling with the latest approaches in managing uncertainty and conducting robust systems design based on targeted sets of goals.
