The Materials and Process Simulation Center (MSC) at Caltech is established in July 1990 as a major resource center to expand the research activities to better emphasize the application of the new methods of theory to critical problems of technological interest. The bjectives of the MSC are to In this talk we will present the status of research, development and applications of multiscale modeling, from from fundamental quantum mechanics level to engineering models as applied to materials such as metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers and biomaterials catalysts, biological systems and will also address the technological impact of various projects.
