NASA and the FAA established the Computational Materials (CM) for Qualification and Certification (Q&C) steering group comprised of representatives from industry, government regulatory and research organizations, and academia with the following goals:
• Inform research and development investments made by U.S. industry and the U.S. government toward maturation of CM-based approaches for Q&C of process intensive metallic materials (PIM) including additive manufacturing.
• Identify key considerations and enablers required to increase airworthiness / certifying authorities’ acceptance of CM methods use for Q&C of structural or flight-critical parts produced with PIM technologies.
• Identify key CM technology gaps and maturation paths (in the context of Q&C applications).
• Increase dialogue among stakeholder organizations.
This presentation will summarize the technology and regulatory considerations that motivate this national effort, discuss progress and provide a summary and status of a multi-year roadmap that is being developed to guide technology development in this important area.
