Advanced Computation and Data in Materials and Manufacturing examines the core knowledge required to fully realize the game-changing potential of advanced computation and data approaches. Building on the contributions of leading experts who participated in a facilitated workshop in March 2018, the report identifies 38 technical gaps, and provides detailed discussion and action plans to close the six highest priority gaps:

  • Coupling Simulations and Experiments
  • Data-Driven Approaches
  • Digital Data Infrastructure
  • Digital Representation and Visualization
  • Predictive Multiscale Modeling
  • Uncertainty Quantification and Propagation
