Title: Accelerated qualification and certification of materials with ICMD® design software

Speaker: Kerem Taskin, Senior Client Solutions Engineer

                Tanner Kirk, Materials Design Engineer


Accelerated Insertion of Materials (AIM) is a methodology for rapidly qualifying materials for specific applications by coupling modeling, simulation and testing across all stages of component and material development. This allows for rapidly iterating on design concepts that will be most beneficial to the target application, combining the aleatory uncertainty of the real manufacturing process and the epistemic uncertainty captured by simulation to predict distributions of material performance, and predicting minimum material properties on a full-scale production level using a minimum amount of experimental testing

QuesTek has applied its AIM methodology to accelerating the qualification and flight deployment of several aerospace steels. Now, this methodology is packaged in QuesTek’s Accelerated Qualification Toolkit (AQT) within the ICMD® software platform.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about: 

The history of AIM and its application to the accelerated qualification of Ferrium M54 steel hookshanks 

The Alloy Qualification Toolkit within the ICMD® software platform including its capabilities in sensitivity analysis and AIM calibration
