The scope of this course is to provide a basic introduction to computational modelling as it applies to processing of materials. With advances in materials science, “new” and “old” materials are being processed at higher efficiencies using novel methods thanks, in part, to computational modelling. This course serves as an introduction to modelling and illustrates the various steps required to complete a model, including:
This course would be useful for lead engineers/scientists who may not use computational models but would like to understand their use and limitation. The course would apply to any materials processing industry (casting, forging, rolling, heat-treatment, vapor deposition, etc.).
