Lessons Learned Solving Industrial Problems
This webinar is designed to offer value and inspiration to both newcomers and experts alike in atomistic materials modeling by offering insights into the contributions that state-of-the-art modeling can make to solving real-world engineering problems. We’ll discuss the practical application of atomic-scale computations to develop safer, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly industrial materials, products, and processes. After a short survey of industry needs and opportunities and a review of the present state of the art in computational materials modeling, the bulk of this webinar will focus on specific industrial applications. Cases discussed will include precipitation hardening of steels, aqueous corrosion and irradiation-induced growth of zirconium alloys, performance of Li-ion batteries, strength of composite materials, and CO2 capture.
