FS2: Computational Design, Modeling, and Simulation of Ceramics and Composites


ICACC'12

Preliminary Program – Focused Session 2


Recent progress in computational materials science has significantly enhanced the efficiency with which the understanding of fundamental phenomena, the improvement of materials performance, the optimization of processing, and the design of new materials and devices can be achieved. Yet, many challenges remain. This symposium will focus on the design, modeling, simulation, and characterization of ceramics and composites so as to further optimize their behavior and facilitate the design of new ceramics or composites with tailored properties, A broad perspective is desired including prediction of the crystal structure and properties of new ceramics, materials design for extreme/harsh environments, virtual materials design for new innovative materials, application of novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance, and the characterization and modeling of surfaces, interfaces, and grain boundaries at multiple scales.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance
  • Prediction/simulation of crystal structure and properties of advanced ceramics
  • Materials design for extreme environments, including applications for ultrahigh temperature, environmental and thermal barrier coatings
  • Prediction of new interface materials for ceramic matrix composites
  • Virtual material design for new innovative materials
  • Simulation/characterization of material behavior at high-temperatures
  • Characterization and modeling of surfaces, interfaces and grain boundaries at multiple scales
