Idaho National Laboratory has the required computational tools and expertise (VASP, LAMMPS, GIBBS, PHONON, THERMO-CALC, DICTRA, and PRISMA) that enable designing different aluminum alloy tempers for service in aggressive environments (corrosion). Customers can obtain competent advice, expertise, and calculation results, facilitating the aluminum alloy selection process for different types of services.
Limited to foundry aluminum alloys.
The combined application of supercomputing, sophisticated computational tools, and industrial expertise allows INL to develop solutions in the form of different thermo-mechanical treatments or collapsed production cycles that ensure savings of energy, time, and money--all while providing the required alloy’s superior performance.
Work can be conducted at INL or with a potential customer.
