The future of the European industry is associated with a strong materials modelling capacity. An efficient modelling approach is needed to shorten the development process of materials-enabled products.
Materials modelling is used today by a range of industries to improve efficiency and achieve breakthroughs in the development of new and improved materials and processes. A set of case studies has been developed which demonstrate how industrial R&D problems have been addressed by the integration of different types of materials models and what technical and technological benefits and business impacts were achieved as a result.
Modelling is a powerful tool that supports materials research in the development of novel or improved applications.
The sixth version of the Review of Materials Models (RoMM) defines the necessary concepts and proposes names which harmonise the language of modelling subfields. The common language is hoped to foster dialogue between industrial end-users, software developers and theoreticians. The RoMM also makes new classification (taxonomy) and the relation between concepts forms the basis for an ontology. This in its turn can be a basis for metadata development necessary for interoperability. The scope and achievements of the modelling in 36 H2020 projects are presented with this harmonised language using the MODA template.
A short version for non-modellers is also available.
For a review of modelling in 100 projects funded in the 7th Framework Programme (2007-2013) by the NMP Programme we refer to the fifth version of this RoMM.
Materials Modelling: EMMC International workshop
The future of the European industry is associated with a strong materials modelling capacity. An efficient modelling approach is needed to shorten the development process of materials-enabled products. Communication between the fields will be facilitated by a commonly understood vocabulary. An international meeting with US, South-Korea and Japan was held addressing all these issues. Here is the meeting report.
