Future Materials Design (SuperFraMat)
Research Project , 2019 – 2022

Purpose and goal: The project addresses the industrial need for development tools for new materials and connects the entire knowledge chain, from modelling at the forefront of materials research to industrial application. The project focuses on description of complex precipitation phenomena which are the basis for development of most new high-performance metallic materials. It is thus an important prerequisite for the long-term strategic development of materials development tools within the strategic innovation area Metallic Materials. Expected results and effects: The project addresses the basic concepts behind Agenda step 3 Accelerate Material Development. It aims towards long-term development of generic modelling concepts which will form the basis for materials development for many years to come and be applicable for many companies, materials types and initiatives.

Approach and implementation: New models for precipitation which will be published and utilized in other initiatives Advanced experimental characterisation of precipitation behaviour in complex materials, plus use of this information for validation of theoretical models. Industrially-oriented workshops with specific problem-solving directly related to materials development Creation of educational material, dissemination and capturing new ideas via open seminars for a broader circle of stakeholders within Metallic Materials.
