Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) ChemE 7700
The primary objective of this course is to learn the process of analyzing and understanding computational tools at different length scales and how they interact with each other in terms of bridging. Although engineering products and systems can fail their design requirements allowing for new tools for efficient and effective evaluation is crucial. As such, we will cover plasticity, damage/fracture, and fatigue in the context of designing metallic structures from the view of multiple length scales. We will also examine experimental techniques for model exploration, model calibration, and model validation as well as failure prevention in the context of a diverse set of actual case studies. The case studies are used to provide a real world link for the material failure mechanisms and analysis tools you will learn in this class. It is also designed for distance learning.
