Abstract Scope ICME of automotive materials has been an active area of research in the past few years. There has been some progress and success stories, but several unresolved issues especially in the case of composites, continues to prohibit the usage of these developments in commercial industrial simulations. To meet the 54.5 mpg CAFE requirement through lightweighting, among other options, GM is interested in evaluating carbon fiber composites in body structural panels that have to meet complex loading requirements for crash and durability. Since the technology to validate the automotive composite material designs for these structural areas is not currently available, GM has teamed up with leading composite material simulation software companies and academia through a Department of Energy funded project to develop a state of the art probabilistic ICME tools to realize the knowledge base. In this paper, the progress of the project in the last two years will be presented.
