Development of a new method for material- and process-development based on ab initio calculations.
Materialdesign of a new class of structural materials with extraordinary property combinations.
Acceleration of development time and reduction of experimental efforts and complexity for material- and process-development.
Depending on specific questions the ab initio methods are supported by classical material development on the mesoscopic scale. Results from ab initio and other numerical calculations are experimentally validated. Modeling is achieved by “scale hopping” concentrating on the key-mechanisms of each scale. Finally results are combined on the basis of the stacking-fault-energy as a common factor.
