Every product or process has modes of failure. An analysis of potential failures helps designers focus on and understand the impact of potential process or product risks and failures Collecting and analyzing data to determine the cause of a failure, often with the goal of determining corrective actions or liability, plays an important discipline in many branches of manufacturing industry. In the April meeting, we will go over a brief overview of the failure analysis, with several case study and samples. We will get back to the basics of material science. Please see Chapter April 2018 Newsletter for more information.
808th Technical Meeting - How Computational Tools Can Guide The Discovery of New Functional Materials
November 16, 2017 | Meson Madrid
Computational methods are extremely useful to provide critical insight into fundamental and challenging materials issues. The simultaneous development of efficient modeling strategies and advancement in computational power has accelerated the use of computational tools in various fields including Materials Science. Computational predictions compliment experiment to probe details which are extremely difficult to examine using current characterization tools. In this presentation, I will briefly summarize the different simulation methods available for materials research, and highlight the use of electronic and atomic level simulations such as Density Functional Theory and Molecular Dynamics to investigate fundamental structure-property relationship in functional materials. I will discuss how we are using computational tools to guide experimental design of novel materials for functional applications.
