AVAILABLE STUDIES
Materials Data Infrastructure:
A Roadmap for Enabling Storage and Sharing of Data in the Materials Community
Study Currently Under Development
The availability of increasingly sophisticated experimental and computational tools provides scientists and engineers with new opportunities, but harnessing the vast amounts of data generated from these new approaches presents a challenge. This roadmapping study seeks to identify ways to establish a robust materials data infrastructure in order to accelerate the discovery, development, and deployment of materials. The study is focused on two distinct, but related, issues: data storage and data sharing. A downloadable, final report summarizing the findings will be available in June 2017.

Implementing ICME in the Aerospace, Automotive, and Maritime Industries
 
Publication Date: July 2013
Detailed, practical guidance to implementing integrated computational materials engineering (ICME), via initiating an ICME-accelerated product development program within three years, is at your fingertips in Implementing ICME in the Aerospace, Automotive, and Maritime Industries. This resource compiles the insights, knowledge, and experience of nearly 50 recognized technical experts in ICME and its allied fields, while also building on the broad recommendations of the 2008 U.S. National Academies report that first defined ICME as a new sub-discipline in materials science with enormous power to revolutionize materials-intensive product development cycles.
