Abstract
"It is expected that accelerated insertion of materials (AIM) will be facilitated through development of linked engineered material databases, that are capable of conducting quick virtual testing of new materials, that is supplemented by limited physicaltesting, rather than proceeding directly to complete experimental characterization. During Phase I of this program, Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC) demonstrated the feasibility of using computational simulation tools to predict the thermo-physicaland strength properties of textile fiber reinforced composite materials. The linked engineering knowledge base to be developed, demonstrated and validated under the Phase II research program will be based on the Mathematica style notebook interface.Individual modules that simulate microstructural behavior will provide input to structured material modules whose output are macro- or structural-level properties. Generation of limited data at any of the levels can then be expected to provide (limited)validation at other levels and, the total amount of testing required to characterize a new textile fiber reinforced material can be reduced. Data interpretation tools, a database function and on-line documentation will be included in the tool-set.Experimental validation of the tool-set and a software publishing and commercialization strategy are outlined in this Phase II proposal."
