Emerging structures design tools in multiscale materials finite element modeling are beginning to provide an interface to simulations, extensions to make use of simulation data, and support for location-specific properties in single parts. These tools enable designs that make use of materials science and engineering (processing, microstructure and performance) in the finite element model, independently triggering simulations as required. They also provide a smart caching strategy, to facilitate pervasive solutions that accommodate a range of structural materials.
The development of a suite of open source tools that realize these goals will be described, extending the Computational Model Builder project with a "smart-cache" capable of triggering meso/microscale simulations to provide more accurate materials properties based on processing history. These tools are being developed to explore the effects of processing history on thermal/structural simulation involving metallic components of interest to the aerospace industry with potential applications in many other fields.
