Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop the computational algorithms, strategies, and informational framework needed to design materials in an integrated manner across length and time scales, thereby creating the ability to design and tailor material properties for specific applications.

Project Benefits

This project will focus on the design of multi-scale materials for application in advanced power plants. The tool developed will allow researchers to narrow down possible alloy formulations from tens of thousands to a manageable number of combinations that are most likely to succeed. Implementation of these algorithms will promote the strategies and informational framework needed to design new materials suitable for operation in the harsh environment of advanced power systems, resulting in lower operating costs for these facilities.
