< ICME 2015 Overview



To demonstrate your understanding of the cyberinfrastructure and ICME you must complete a total of five (5) contributions to the ICME site as well as add a page related to the topic you have chosen to investigate using ICME methods. As you complete each of these contributions remember to categorize each page you create as well as link that page to the appropriate length scale for the material and/or material model that you are working with.

Once you have obtained your login credentials and are able to edit pages you should visit the Editing ICME page to better understand the methods for creating and editing pages required for your contributions. Another helpful tip is to click on the Edit tab at the top of the page or in a particular section to view how others have formatted pages and sections.

Maintaining the format from previous classes, there are "Student #" sections available that are to be claimed by the student. You will place a brief description and any relevant links for each of your contributions in the "Student #" section you choose. Email the "Student #" you have chosen to Shane Brauer. DO NOT list your name on this page!

Details for each contribution to be made are given in the subsequent sections.

Contribution 1

Add a page or pages to the site related to an area of research that you are an expert in.

An example for this contribution is experimental testing of a metal using an Instron machine. In this example the page for Instron testing machines was first created then populated with information pertaining to several of their machines. Next, several machines housed at CAVS were listed and briefly described. After creating those sections cross-linking was performed to ensure that people looking for equipment at CAVS were directed to the correct page. A section for performing compression tests was then created to briefly describe the setup and execution of a single test. The last item addressed was categorizing the page created. Categorizing pages is an additional step that helps identify other pages that may be of interest to someone, but do not have a direct association with the page they are currently on.

The following excerpt was used for completing the experimental method of compression tests.

Here you would describe the methodology for testing the material as well as the Instron machine. 
* Are you using cylindrical samples? 
* Compression or tension? 
* Why should you use an extensometer? 
* Do you have images to contribute to this section (say an image of the machine or the setup of the test)?

There are several other contributions that could be made on this example page just related to testing a metal.

Subjects that could use attention:

  • Testing machinery available at CAVS -- What is it? Why/how is it used?
  • Experimental methods for those machines -- Compression, tension, torsion, etc.; Metals, polymers, biomaterials, etc.;
  • Experimental techniques for viewing and quantifying microstructures -- Mounting, polishing, etching, etc.
  • Examples for running simulations
  • Tutorials for quantifying microstructures -- There are various softwares used for this. (e.g. Using ImageJ to find the grain size, void size, volume fractions, etc.). A tutorial can come in the form of a written tutorial or video tutorial.

There are countless other areas that are related to your research that have yet to make their way onto the ICME site. Remember that although some of these subjects may seem trivial to you, others may not find them so simple, and for that reason it is extremely important to be thorough in describing the machines, methods, etc. that you are contributing too.

If you feel that you are not an expert in any one area, or you cannot contribute to the subjects mentioned above, please speak with Dr. Horstemeyer or Dr. Shelton about a topic for contribution.

Contribution 2

To improve the robustness of the ICME website you will be tasked with cross-linking and categorizing pages that have already been populated. You are to find a minimum of two (2) pages that need to be cross-linked and/or categorized appropriately. Once you have completed your contribution list the pages that were updated along with the specific corrections that you made. Cross-linking of pages will take place in a similar fashion as discussed in Contribution 1. Proper categorization is defined as having a minimum of three (3) categories to describe a page.

Keep in mind the saying "all roads lead to Rome" for this contribution as you are browsing the site i.e. Macroscale experiments, models, data, etc. should all be accessible from the Macroscale category page and should link back to the appropriate Macroscale page.

This site is accessed from all over the world directly and indirectly. These people may come to a dead-end page that has no categories nor links to additional pages, which could turn them away from continued use of the ICME site. We can prevent that from happening by adding the appropriate categories and cross-linking.

Excellent places to start are dead-end pages and uncategorized pages. These pages do not link to other pages on the site and are typically not categorized (note that some of these pages are spam and can be ignored).

Contribution 3

Each student will add stress-strain data pertaining to a material of their choice.
A few suggestions for data you should be searching for are (but are not limited to):

  • Compression, Tension, and Torsion
    • Various strain rates (i.e. 10-3 s-1, 10-1 s-1, and 103 s-1)
    • Various temperatures (i.e. 4140 steel tested at 293 K and 600 K)

You will then create a single page for the material you have chosen, and upload all of the data you have gathered to the created page. Please give a brief description of each figure as well as the reference from which the figure was obtained.

The following list of materials is first-come, first-serve. Once you have chosen your material place your "Student #" next to that material in the table.

Contribution 4

Each student will add a fatigue-life curve for the material they have chosen in the previous contribution. If a fatigue-life curve does not exist for the material previously chosen then choose a second material for this contribution. You will upload this figure to the same page created for Contribution 3, and give a brief description of the figure. Include the reference from which you obtained this figure.

Contribution 5

Add a journal article that you have authored or co-authored to the site. Use the format demonstrated by Dr. Tschopp for completing this contribution.

If you have not authored or co-authored a journal article, contact Shane Brauer for an article that you can use.

ICME Slide/Lit Review

Along with the five (5) previous contributions you are to create a page that includes the slide pertaining to the ICME topic you chose and a summarized description of your literature review. This page should reflect any comments/criticism that you received for your slide as well as your literature review. Excellent examples are found here and here.

Student 10

Contribution 1: Construction & Utilization of a Beowulf Cluster or a High-Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC) as we call them now. This is a little dated, from the early days of LINUX clusters. I helped bring the first cluster to Stennis Space Center in 2000. Moore's Law works for HPCCs. One compute node on the cluster we have today has more computing power than the entire 50 node cluster from 2000 (and the cost for nodes today is of the same order of magnitude as it was in 2000).
