ASM International, Materials Park, Ohio, is presenting a course called Introduction to Computational Materials Engineering being held in conjunction with AeroMat 2012 in Charlotte, N.C. in June.
The course was assembled to provide an overview of computational materials engineering. It provides a primer on the various types of models and simulation methods. It is aimed at providing a general understanding of the critical issues relative to computational materials engineering, with a goal to provide students with greater knowledge of materials and process modeling capabilities and limitations.
A similar one-day course will be presented at Materials Science & Technology 2012 in October in Pittsburgh, PA in a partnership between ASM International and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS).
TheAeroMat course will address important aspects of linking materials models with process models and subsequently to component design and behavior analysis models. This course is aimed at providing critical information to materials, mechanical design and manufacturing engineers, program managers and engineering management looking to introduce or apply computational materials methods in the future as point solutions or as systematic changes to how they perform their engineering functions.
This course does not provide practical hands-on training of specific models or codes, but rather an appreciation for the types of models available, their benefit, and how various model outputs should be interpreted.
