TMS 2012: Continuing Education Course:
Existing and Needed Computational Capabilities of Ni-base Superalloys
March 11, 2012 • Orlando, FL

Who should attend:
Scientists and engineers working on or interested in computational modeling of alloys.
Download the Course Flier (PDF).


Workshop Overview
Assess the existing and needed modeling capabilities for Ni-base superalloys in U.S. universities, research institutions, and industry applicable to the Materials Genome Initiative. In this context "the word genome, when applied in non-biological contexts, connotes a fundamental building block toward a larger purpose." The workshop will chart the future development of fundamental computational tools that can be tailored to specific applications with minimum modification.

Tentative Topics
1. Overview of modeling strategies, scales of material hierarchy, verification and validation
2. Commercial alloys based on individual phase information
.....2.1. Relevant models and scales for strength
.....2.2. Relevant models and scales for fatigue
.....2.3. Relevant models and scales for creep and oxidation
3. Role of microstructure and interfaces
.....3.1. Microstructure simulations
.....3.2. Microstructure representation and inverse correlations
.....3.3. Interfaces and models - APBs, stacking faults, GBs, twins, and slip transfer
4. First principles and modeling of computable properties
