TopicM: Modelling and Simulation
lntegrated Computational Materials Engineering - ICME - is an emerging field in materials science and engineering. The main objectives of ICME are materials description and production process elaboration towards engineering components and their application in order to shorten product and process development time, while lowering cost and improving product quality.
The scope of this Symposium is to discuss numerical models that describe the influence of processing conditions on resulting material microstructures and properties. The aim is to better understand microstructure-based materials processing models, evolution of microstructures and defect formation in casting, powder processing, semi-solid and solid state processing. A further focus lies on the stability of process or simulation chains or the influence of error propagation along the chain. Developments in theoretical, experimentally driven, and computational approaches to material characterization, property prediction, structure evolution and linking process-structure and property will also be discussed in the symposium.
