The ICARUS article included @ the January 2019 issue of the EASN Newsletter, is available for reading

An innovative, new predictive tool that allows fast exploration, identification and design of new thermodynamically stable multi-component nanocrystalline (nc) metal alloys with enhanced thermal stability, was developed by the scientists of the ICARUS project. This new tool, namely the High-Throughput Screening (HTS) tool, can be implemented in high-performance computing systems ensuring fast and efficient alloy exploration and selection. In the frame of the project, which aims at discovering an entirely new class of multi-component nc metal alloys resistant to coarsening with properties specifically tailored to application, a systematic exploration for identifying potential thermodynamically stable alloys has been performed with the support of the HTS tool.

Entering the final semester of its lifetime, ICARUS progresses its pace at research and innovation towards obtaining cutting-edge results. On the 13th and 14th of December, 2018 the ICARUS Consortium conducted its M24 Progress Meeting in Treviso, Italy. The two-day project meeting was an opportunity to discuss on the latest scientific and technical achievements, the overall progress of the project, exchange ideas and agree on next steps.

We cannot end this article without mentioning the publication of a new open-access scientific paper of our colleague K. Tserpes, under the title “Prediction of mechanical properties of nanocrystalline materials using Voronoi FE models of representative volume element” in the proceedings of the 8th EASN-CEAS International Workshop on “Manufacturing for Growth & Innovation”.
