Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME)

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is a discipline that aims to integrate computational materials science tools into a holistic system that can accelerate materials development, transform the engineering design optimization process, and unify design and manufacturing. The notion of ICME arose from the simulation-based design paradigm that employs a hierarchical multiscale modeling methodology for optimizing load-bearing structures. This approach includes performing experiments and simulations at different length scales and linking this data to determine structure-properties relationships.

ICME continues to evolve, its revolutionary vision progressively adapting to assimilate advances in information technology, multiscale simulation technology, and the underlying sciences of engineering (i.e., applied mathematics, physics of materials, and different length scales).
