The introduction of materials modelling into computer-aided engineering (CAE) processing simulation has become popular in recent years, whereas the fundamental challenge lies in the development of material models that can calculate the properties essential for processing design and simulation. This paper reviews the recent development of such models and the material data that can be calculated include physical, thermophysical, and mechanical properties, as well as phase transformation kinetics. The calculated material data has been used as input to numerous CAE packages for the simulation of casting, welding, forming and heat treatments. Two case studies are presented here, one on the simulation of residual stress in linear friction welding of titanium alloys, and the other on the prediction of distortion and residual stress in heat-treated large steel rings.
