SYMPOSIUM 10: Virtual Materials (Computational) Design and Ceramic Genome



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, the discovery of new materials, and the design of structural components can be achieved. This symposium will focus on the design, modeling and simulation of ceramics and composites so as to further optimize their behavior and facilitate the design of new ceramics and composites with tailored properties. A broader perspective is desired including the interest related to ceramic genome, virtual materials design for new innovative materials and thermo-structure, integrated materials computational engineering, prediction of the structure and properties of crystals and defects, modeling materials behavior under extreme/harsh environments, application of novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance, simulation of novel ceramics for functional applications, and the modeling of surfaces, interfaces, and grain boundaries at multiple scales.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Ceramic genome
  • Integrated materials computational engineering
  • Novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance
  • Multiscale modeling approaches
  • Modeling materials behavior under extreme/harsh environments (ultrahigh temperature, radiation, environmental damages, and severe mechanical load and stresses)
  • Model-aided design of thermal insulating and thermo-structural materials
