Material Selection Techniques by Using Computer


This research is concerned in showing the importance of material selection inproduction design stage, the factors that involved the material selection strategies andits criteria and the modern approach of materials selection since there are manytechniques of material selection. The proposal work helps in choosing the followingappropriate techniques from many quantitative ones. The following techniques(Geometrical approach, Algebraic Approach), were included in the work thedeveloped system solves the selection techniques and introduce the best material froma database contains the steel family.The case study was examined from the real world of manufacturing andsatisfactory results were obtained. The developed algorithm is being to build MaterialSelection Techniques system called MASTECH which incorporates making decisionon materials selection.In the research, MASTECH system has been developed to aid both designersand manufacturing engineers in choosing the most suitable material.
