AREAS OF INTEREST AND COMPETENCIES

UTARI’s Institute for Predictive Performance Methodologies develops applied science and engineering that demonetizes the conception, development, and application of engineered materials and structures, and the risk of using them in society. Areas of interest include engineered materials design, manufacturing, characterization, and prognostication of strength and life of as-manufactured parts and in-service material and structural systems. Competencies include predicting the behavior of materials and material systems in the presence of applied mechanical, thermal, and electrical fields, including static, cyclic / dynamic / pulsed / blast loading. Typical outputs are strength, life, durability, damage tolerance, safety, risk, maintainability, and integrity.

RESOURCES: STAFF, LABS, AND EQUIPMENT

The Institute for Predictive Performance specializes in heterogeneous materials including: polymer, metal, and ceramic based composites for structural, electrochemical, chemical processing, nuclear fuels and nuclear waste storage, and chemical processing applications. Unique strengths include the development of special material analysis, characterization, and assessment methods that enable the prediction of future performance on the basis of current condition, including as-manufactured condition, for individual specimens, devices, structures, and systems. This is enabling technology for modern design and risk control methods such as supervisory control, zero maintenance, and certain nuclear nonproliferation strategies.
