Sustainable Manufacturing via Multi-Scale Physics-Based Process Modeling and Manufacturing-informed Design:

Micro-structural modeling tools for metals will be developed and used to demonstrate a design framework to improve the understanding of
dynamic response and statistical variability. This project will enable design engineers to evaluate the effects of design changes and material
selection; anticipate quality and cost prior to implementation on the factory floor; and enable low-waste, low-cost manufacturing. Project participants:

  • Third Wave Systems, Inc. (P.I.)
  • Purdue University (co-P.I.)
  • Georgia Institute of Technology (co-P.I.)
  • University of California Santa Barbara (co-P.I.)
  • The Pennsylvania State University (co-P.I.)
