Introduction to Materials Informatics with Open Source Tools

Sunday, October 4, 2015
1:00pm to 4:30pm EDT

Instructors:  Surya R. Kalidindi and David Brough

Microstructure informatics is an emerging suite of advanced statistical tools and data science methods tailored specifically to the quantification of the hierarchical internal structure (also called microstructure) and the extraction of process-structure-property (PSP) relationships in materials science. The purpose of the materials informatics workshop is to provide practical knowledge in using these techniques to improve the efficiency and efficacy of multiscale simulations and experimental characterization involving materials microstructure, see 1, 2, 3and 4. The workshop will focus on introducing participants to a set of open source computational tools in Python that address foundational components of the emerging materials informatics.

The techniques covered in the workshop are useful to any materials scientist and are especially relevant to many of the challenges associated with the practical realization of the goals of the Materials Genome Initiative. The workshop will allow participants to significantly augment their existing workflows involving microscale and continuum simulations or experimental characterization to enable more efficient processing of large ensembles of datasets.

Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop

Sunday, October 4, 2015

1:00pm to 4:30pm  EDT

Instructors: David L. Bourell, Sudarsanam Suresh Babu, Jack Beuth and James W. Sears

The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with current additive manufacturing (AM) processes; current AM practice for metals, polymers and ceramics; modeling of AM processes, microstructural evolution, and service properties; and current challenges and research opportunities.

This workshop is designed for people in the materials community already familiar with AM processes who want to learn more; academics and researchers will also benefit from discussions about current challenges to the full adoption of AM. The workshop is also designed to prepare participants to fully engage in the TMS 2015 Annual Meeting Symposium on “Additive Manufacturing: Interrelationships of Fabrication, Constitutive Relationships Targeting Performance, and Feedback to Process Control.”
