Project description

New software helps create metal alloys with tailored properties

Metals comprising nanocrystalline grains – tiny crystallites measuring tens of nanometres across – are much stronger compared to conventional coarse-grained materials. Until now, scientists lacked the ability to predict the performance of nanocrystalline materials. The EU-funded ICARUS-SW is working on developing software to model and tailor properties of nanocrystalline metal alloys. The software will be used for designing new thermodynamically stable nanocrystalline metal alloys with enhanced thermal and mechanical properties, which will also be able to heal themselves after suffering radiation-induced damage. Such materials can find use in a wide array of structural applications.
