Join us for ASM Int'l Metro NY-NJ Chapter September 26 2017 Tech Meeting. Every manufactured product is made from a natural or engineered material. Unfortunately, some things are made from the wrong material, or are made from the right material, but in the wrong way. Those mistakes can lead to product failures that have serious consequences. When a product failure is analyzed to determine the cause, the material performance is a critical factor to consider, and a materials engineer will be an integral component of the investigation team. Sometimes when bad things happen, the conflict can be taken to the legal system for resolution. The legal professionals rely on technical experts to show them the cause of failure and help assign responsibility for the failure and damages. Since material behavior, material selection, or material processing is often a critical issue in the failure, investigation of the incident will often require the expertise of a materials engineer. This presentation will discuss potential materials related problems in product Held at Meson Madrid at 6:15 pm Networking 7:00 pm Dinner 8:00 pm Presentation Members: $ 35.00, Guests: $ 40.00, Students: $ 15.00 http://www.mesonmadrid.com/
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.
