Next Generation Materials Are Redefining Manufacturing

ARC Advisory White Paper

One of the primary factors driving the emergence of the vast range and diversity of new materials is the predictive materials science approach being embraced by materials scientists. Advanced simulation tools can model the fundamental molecular and atomic interactions that provide the basis for material properties. These tools allow them explore how variances between materials or mixtures will react to changes in physical conditions like temperature to screen candidates before making a physical prototype. As a result, this understanding allows researchers to better optimize their materials toward their end use.
