Predictive Multiscale Materials Design

Monday, June 21, 2021 (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) (EDT)


This 5-day course covers the science, technology, and state-of-the-art computing methods being used to fabricate innovative materials from the molecular scale upwards, as well as advanced manufacturing methods, such as additive manufacturing. Learn more: 

Participant Takeaways 

- Practical problem-solving computational tools paired with a detailed discussion of experimental techniques to probe, - understand, and design the ultimate structure of materials—from atoms upwards 

- How to use the tools to predict mechanical properties such as strength, toughness, deformability, and elasticity, as well as optical, thermal, and electronic properties 

- How to use multiscale tools in energy recovery and sustainable materials and structures 

- Demonstrate the synthesis of computationally-designed hierarchical composites using 3D printing and other advanced manufacturing techniques, followed by subsequent mechanical testing. Includes validation of computational predictions, focused on fracture toughness and strength 

- Critically evaluate and apply the use of computational tools in materials design (synthesis and testing) – molecular mechanics, nanotechnology, multiscale and hierarchical materials, and emerging materials technologies 

- The fundamentals and codes to perform state-of-the-art techniques, such as molecular dynamics, molecular mechanics, and coarse-graining, used to cover a range of length- and time-scales
