Abstract
We propose to develop and validate a computational methodology to predict microstructural evolution, associated with thermal history during processing or during service of marine grade aluminum alloys, and use the results to predict the mechanical properties that are controlled by those microstructures. In Phase I, we will validate our models and evaluate the feasibility of integrating the computational tools into a design protocol. In Phase II, we will identify a challenge problem (alloy composition, application in a component) and develop a methodology to validate and implement the protocol. This work will result in developing a single cohesive computational package for simulation and prediction of processing/microstructure/property relationships in specific marine-grade alloy systems.
