||Materials and process modeling and simulation are being a larger part of many industries, with applications within the alloy design, process design, component manufacture, and component design and optimization activities. Formalized, multi-disciplinary programs are springing up within companies and universities alike to link fundamental understanding of materials to manufacturing processes, and subsequently into product design activities in various orders and levels of emphasis. This emerging technology area is often called, Integrated Computational Materials Engineering or ICME.
This symposium will provide an overview of various fundamental materials modeling areas and will provide a primer on how manufacturing processes can be simulated by various forms of computational tools.
Authors of articles from the recently released ASM-International Handbooks on Modeling and Simulation (Volumes 22A and 22B) will be invited to speak at this symposium. These speakers will provide an overview of the focused modeling and simulation area they have detailed in the handbooks and the latest information in their areas of expertise. Examples of how various models and simulation tools can be applied to real-world applications will be provided. Additionally, engineers and researcher from industry and academia are welcomed to participate as speakers to provide further insight into modeling and simulation tools not yet captured within the current handbooks. This exciting new technology area is growing rapidly with new models, simulation tools and applications being developed at a feverish pace.
Materials engineers and designers interested in learning about ICME and how it could be applied within their daily activities are encouraged to attend.
