WG 1: Modelling and Multiscale

Chairperson: Amaya Igartua (Tekniker)

Under construction !

Scope and objective of this WG

WG1 deals with any aspect related to the modelling of materials and their transformation processes. It is nowadays impossible to image significant step forward in material science without the support of advanced and reliable modelling design capabilities of materials and their behaviour in operating condition and full life cycle view.
Both experimental and theoretical tools have improved considerably so that much stronger links between basic physical and chemical properties at the atomic/molecular structural level and the overall properties of the material have been established. In this context materials modelling will play an increasingly important role as it moves more and more from a description of idealized limiting cases towards an almost complete characterization of the system being investigated.

In that sense, the WG1 covers all the aspects related to material modelling as:

Modelling and simulation of material properties (microstructure, texture, internal stresses, physical and mechanical properties, acoustical damping, wear and corrosion resistance, lifecycle...).

Modelling of Manufacturing Processes
Simulation of manufacturing processes (solidification, 3D injection with or without reinforcement, fibers, anisotropy...) and systems (virtual and accurate products, conduction positions).

Product Lifecycle Modeling
Integration of the environmental impact and the cost impact, reflecting the overall lifecycle consequences for the product or process development.

Multiscale Modeling and Characterization
a key challenge for a cost effective development and production of both traditional and innovative Nanomaterials is the integration of computational modelling with experimental and testing techniques, in a common integrated industrial concept design. Integrated Multiscale Collaborative Frameworks enable real unified modelling - experimental & testing strategies thanks to the “Multiscale Information Space” concept and method. This implies the development of languages and modules to describe physical and chemical structures and related Structure – Properties – Performance – Processes relationships and interdependencies over the full range of space and time scales.

The main industrial sectors addressed by WG1 modelling activities includes:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive, Rail & Marine industries (replacing conventional metals)
  • Gas turbines, Pressure vessels, Wind energy (turbine blades)
  • Micro-chips & micro-machines
  • Biotech & Medicine
  • Extreme conditions: high-temperature, high pressure, creep, corrosion and radiation resistance
