The Center for Process Simulation and Design (CPSD) is dedicated to improving the quality and performance of products and materials through simulation and optimization of the industrial processes by which they are manufactured. Its initial focus is on understanding and controling microstructural material properites resulting from casting and extrusion processes. Such problems have multiple length and time scales, moving boundaries, and complex, dynamically evolving geometries and topologies. This interdisciplinary program includes a broad range of research activities in engineering, mathematics, and computer science.
CPSD is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under the Information Technology Research (ITR) initiative, with joint sponsorship by the Division of Materials Research and the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering. The initial funding for CPSD was provided by the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences, the NSF Office of Multidisciplinary Activities, and by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
