Unlike functional materials, which most often are used for one specific physical or chemical property, structural materials often need to satisfy simultaneously several different properties such as strength, ductility, modulus, fracture toughness, environmental resistance, etc. In addition, many structural materials undergo several different processes such as casting, forging, rolling, and the like before they are used in the final product. Thus it is not very practical to “screen” for structural materials directly. Instead, high-efficiency approaches can be used to map critical properties and data to accelerate the design of structural materials.
