A prerequisite for successful technology-intensive industry is the availability of reliable modeling and simulation environments.
Powerful simulation tools combined with solid modeling skills (Computational Added Engineering, CAE) are today a necessary complement to experience-based design and innovation. Modeling of graphene-related materials (GRM) is today limited to relatively small scales up to the micrometer level. The numerical methods used are highly specialized and cannot be integrated into commercial modeling platforms without significant efforts.
The project idea is based on the knowledge gap regarding modeling of GRM based on a simulation perspective in relation to a design work or conceptual design. We do this by identifying terms, conditions and prioritization based on a well-established CAE platform for interconnecting with simulation models developed within academic research. This is done delimitatively and with a systematic approach on a scientific basis with high market feedback and with great potential in increasing the degree of engineering maturity of graphene.
