Atoms to Autos: A Multi-scale Approach to Modeling Aluminum Deformation

A multi-scale, computational design approach for aluminum sheet alloys, which includes key inputs from the electronic, atomistic, microstructural, and continuum length scales, is reviewed within the context of room and elevated temperature forming. Specific examples, which are aimed at improving aluminum sheet materials for automobile components, include prediction of flow curves from tensile testing, forming limit diagrams, and component forming.
