||The goal of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is to enable the optimization of materials, manufacturing and component design by integrating computational models and experimental results in a holistic approach. Critical to achieving this goal is the development of computational tools and infrastructure to enable the integration across multiple length and time scales and a wide variety of data inputs. Over the past 10 years, ICME has been successfully applied to a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and marine industries, for specific material classes or applications. While the ultimate vision for ICME is the seamless transition between relevant scales and the rapid progression from discovery to deployment, advancements in ICME approaches continue to reveal technology gaps that encumber more widespread utilization. The proposed symposium will take a unique approach to highlighting two critical ICME elements, (1) the evolution and assessment of technology gaps in ICME approaches applied to high-temperature structural materials, and (2) the tools and infrastructure developments that have bridged length and time scales and/or integrated computational tools and experimental outputs to accelerate materials design and manufacturing. The introductory sessions of the symposium on gap analysis will be an invitation-only session that highlights ICME needs from a historical perspective, the envisioned future areas of focus, and the advancements that are addressing the identified gaps for high-temperature structural materials . The second set of sessions are open to all speakers that are engaged in the development of ICME tools and infrastructure.
Specific topics of interest are:
• Quantitative tools for microstructure evolution that can be used to optimize manufacturing process (e.g. rolling, extrusion) or predict materials properties (i.e. fracture, fatigue, and/or corrosion behavior in service)
• Integration of computational tools with experimental data
• Integration of property prediction tools with component performance tools
• Integration of computational tools and experimental data with uncertainty analysis
• Materials Informatics-based approaches for data integration and the concurrent consideration of descriptors
• Validation and verification tools and methods for linking simulations with experiments
• Integration tools and methods for linking processing-structure-property relationships
• Collaboration platforms enabling data and tool sharing.
The ability to develop the tools that integrate across the process-structure-property paradigm are essential to the continuing the ICME success to accelerate materials design and manufacturing. Practical developments that are specific to industrial applications in the automotive, aerospace, marine, electronic and biomedical sectors are strongly encouraged.
