Utilizing Medical Imaging Technology for Generation of Mesoscale Computational Descriptions
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
The focus of this SBIR project is to provide the technologies needed to go from image data of material microstructures to geometric models representations, and associated meshes of those geometries, that will support the effective application of engineering modeling and simulation to predict the physical properties and behavior of energetic materials. The technologies to be developed will combine advanced image segmentation methods with knowledge of the basic engineering properties of the constituent materials to provide microstructural geometric models that are relevant to engineering analyses. The resulting geometric models will them be automatically and adaptively meshed as needed to support their accurate analysis by finite element and/or finite volume methods. Procedures will be provided to create the input and adaptive control methods for both Lagrangian and Eulerian based mathematical formulations and software. This project will also provide an interactive user environment that will support the addition of new information on material constituent properties and mesh control into the process.
