There is a constant demand for materials and manufacturing technologies which increase performance and efficiency in engineering applications. As many industries go through significant transformations, for example, electrification in the automotive industry, digital transformation in the manufacturing sector or decarbonization in metal processing, rapid discovery of new materials to enable this transformation is critical. Alloyed is addressing the need for rapid materials discovery using its Alloys-by-Design (ABDŽ) computational platform. We will present application of our platform to selected materials design problems with an emphasis on decarbonization and digital manufacture. Impact on decarbonization in metal processing is demonstrated through design of an aluminium casting alloy that does not require heat-treatment, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions and processing costs without compromise in performance. Alloy design for digital manufacturing will be discussed with reference to computational optimization of alloys for additive manufacturing. The role data-science and artificial intelligence methodologies may have in extending current capabilities to revolutionize the way we design and qualify materials in the future is also considered.
