Towards through-process modelling document

This review document benchmarks the state-of-the-art in terms of modelling microstructural evolution in wrought aluminium alloys, to provide a valuable resource for scientists and technologists, both university-based and within industry, regarding the relationships between processing, microstructure and properties, and to help map out the move towards through-process modelling capabilities. The document comprises three main sections.

The first provides a set of six documents, which each describe the applications and processing-microstructure-property relationships for a range of aluminium alloy sheet and extruded products. The second comprises six substantial reviews which each gives an overview of the state-of-the-art on various aspects of microstructure and materials modelling relevant to the project. The third and final section gives a series of summaries highlighting key results from previous collaborative research projects relevant to the current work.
