Emerging Methods for Materials Development and Integration into Product Design

When:  Nov 17, 2021 from 18:30 to 20:00 (ET)
Emerging Methods for Materials Development and Integration into Product Design

Dr. David Furrer, Pratt & Whitney

Join us for a free virtual meeting and networking! RSVP here.

Engineered materials will enable the future of advanced system architectures and component designs. Join us for a discussion on materials development to meet evolving products requirements such as cost, performance, manufacturability, durability, and recyclability. Tools and methods are emerging to guide the development and application of new materials more specifically. Integration of materials design and definition with component design and structural analysis is providing for the potential of further optimization of products not previously possible. Materials definitions are migrating from simple empirical mechanical property data and design curves to processing path and microstructure-based models that are providing for maximum utilization of both legacy and emerging materials. Tools and methods that are providing for these continued engineering advancements will be covered, including physics-based materials modeling, machine learning, materials informatics, and data capture and reuse infrastructures. The linkages between engineering disciplines will also be discussed relative to data management and data life-cycles for design and component digital thread capabilities.

About the speaker
Dr. David Furrer is Senior Fellow Discipline Lead for the Materials and Processes Engineering organization at Pratt & Whitney where he leads the development of technical strategies, engineering standards, and new materials and associated manufacturing processes, including computational tools and methods and additive manufacturing process development. Prior to Pratt & Whitney, David held leadership roles at Rolls-Royce and Ladish Co., Inc. (now ATI Forged Products). He is a Fellow and Past President of ASM International and is a member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering. David has a Bachelors and Masters degrees in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Doctorate of Engineering from the Universität Ulm, Ulm Germany.
