For a long time experimental approach was main method for material design. However, experimental approach has many drawbacks. With the development of the computing sciences, a new era of synthesis of alloys or different materials began. Scientists proposed and developed various approaches for the synthesis of new alloys which relies on phase diagrams, Thermo-Calc, machine learning, neural network and fuzzy concepts.
