Advanced Lightweight Steels: ICME-Based Accelerated Development

Reference number 2018-04755
Coordinator QuesTek Europe AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 125 000
Project duration December 2018 - July 2019
Status Ongoing
Venture Strategiska innovationsprogrammet för lättvikt – LIGHTer

Purpose and goal

Demonstrate accelerated materials development tailored for industrial needs by ICME-based materials design approach.

Expected results and effects

Implementation of the project helps improve QTE knowledge base of lightweight steels and build software tools that serve general-purpose materials design. It can also have influence to materials suppliers and consumers by demonstrating the ICME approach and illustrating accelerated materials development. Expected results include a design material and suggestions for future research and development.

Planned approach and implementation

Activities include (1) building a knowledge base and summarizing industrial needs, (2) implementing materials design using best available computational tools, and (3) pointing out future directions for a better design material.
