Modelling and Simulation of Superalloys 2017

Erik Bitzek's picture

Hands-on tutorials and an International Workshop on Modelling and Simulations of Superalloys will take place 

March 27th-31st at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany.

Superalloys are multi-component materials with complex microstructures that offer unique properties for high-temperature applications. The complexity of the superalloy materials makes it particularly challenging to obtain fundamental insight into their behaviour from the atomic structure to turbine blades. Recent advances in modelling and simulation of superalloys contribute to a better understanding and prediction of materials properties and therefore offer guidance for the development of new alloys.

This workshop will give an overview of recent progress in modelling and simulation of materials for superalloys, with a focus on single crystal Ni-base and Co-base alloys. Topics will include electronic structure methods, atomistic simulations, microstructure modelling and modelling of microstructural evolution, solidification and process simulation as well as the modelling of phase stability and thermodynamics.

The workshop is organized by Jutta Rogal, Thomas Hammerschmidt and Ralf Drautz within the SFB/Transregio 103 Superalloy Single Crystals “From atoms to turbine-blades”
