Abstract : In recent years there has been a significant increase in the effort of developing process models for aerospace materials. Many factors have been responsible for this. Aerospace materials technology is changing very rapidly with the introduction of expensive and sophisticated materials. In addition the shorter life cycle from design to application is inconsistent with the traditional trial-and-error approaches formerly used. The individual papers of the meeting cover developments on analytical process modelling to lower costs and increase reliability in manufacture of components. The meeting concentrated on the modelling of the behaviour of metallic materials, particularly the forming of components such as casting and forgings. Keywords: Process control, Processing, Composite materials, Aluminum alloys, Titanium alloys, Ceramics, Manufacturing. NATO furnished.
