Title: Using Materials Informatics to Quantify Complex Correlations Linking Structure, Properties and Processing in Materials
Location: Virtual Webex Address:

Abstract: I will present several examples in which materials informatics can be used to elucidate and quantify complex correlations linking structure, properties and processing of materials. In the first example, I consider the case of high-entropy (HE) (or multi-principal element) alloys, typically comprising five or more elements. The study of these alloys is a relatively new area of materials research that has attracted intense interest in recent years as, in many cases, these systems possess unexpected and superior mechanical (and other) properties relative to those of conventional alloys. However, the identification of promising HE alloys presents a daunting challenge given the associated vastness of the chemistry/composition space.
