Symposium is being planned to highlight and communicate successes in the use of Accelerated Insertion of Materials (AIM) qualification methodologies. Integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) has made significant inroads in the fields of materials design and development, but is also now making significant headway relative to enabling rapid qualification of new materials in support of the goals of the national Materials Genome Initiative (MGI). The purpose of this symposium is to further communicate the challenges and the demonstrated means to enable rapid qualification of new materials. Rapid qualification methods will be shown to be firmly linked and integrated with customer requirements, material capability uncertainty determination and risk mitigation strategies that support decision making by insertion champions. The use of the AIM methodology to qualification of new materials provides unmatched speed, cost effectiveness and establishment of more complete material definitions.
Invited-speaker symposium will have sessions dedicated to perspectives and requirements for traditional and model-enhanced approval and qualification/certification methods from various organizations, including: DoD, FAA, FDA. Case studies will be included in this symposium to highlight examples of successful AIM qualifications. Methods critical to AIM Qualification will also be a focused element of this symposium, including novel approaches to probabilistic prediction of minimum properties from mechanistic models, and efficient experimental protocols for uncertainty management.
Major Sub-Topics include:
• Qualification and Certification Requirements
• AIM Qualification Case Studies
• Probabilistic Property Prediction Methods
• Uncertainty Management Protocols
• Extension to Component Qualification
