Engineering Virtual Organization for CyberDesign

CAVS logo 3D.jpg MSUlogo2.jpg


Integrated Computational Material Engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline transforming materials science. Computational engineering accelerates materials development, integrates design and manufacturing, and unifies these with the engineering design optimization process, as well as efficiently employs greater accuracy in simulation-based design. Read more...

Efforts to realize this enormous and complex goal have catalyzed the development of the Engineering Virtual Organization for Cyber Design (EVOCD), which provides a cyberinfrastructure to accumulate and protect the intellectual property pertaining to selected aspects of materials science and engineering that is generated by the participants of the organization, to enforce the quality of that information, and to manage its complexity. The intellectual property includes experimental data, material models and constants, computational tools and software artifacts, and the knowledge pertaining to multiscale physics-based models for selected properties and processes.

Call for Participation

The Cyberinfrastructure team created the infrastructure for web-based collaborative efforts. The success of this effort critically depends on the participation of the community towards the generation of the contents that will aid the research in Materials Science and lightweight innovative design.

ICME Cyberinfrastructure

In the vision of the National Materials Advisory Board (NMAB) of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) committee, the ICME cyberinfrastructure will emerge from individual web sites which offer access to information, data, and tools, each established for specific purposes by different organizations. Linked together, these "constituent" Web Portals will form the ICME cyberinfrastructure. EVOCD is one of the nodes of the emerging cyberinfrastructure. Read more ...

The creation of the ICME infrastructure is coordinated by the The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS).
