Towards an ICME Methodology in Europe – Nomenclature, Taxonomies, Ontologies, and Marketplaces

This presentation was made at the 2019 NAFEMS World Congress in Quebec Canada

Resource Abstract

The present article provides an overview about activities towards an ICME methodology currently going on in Europe. The article especially introduces the European Materials Modelling Council EMMC as a bottom-up activity of the European materials modelling community and provide a short outline of the different working groups within the EMMC and their objectives.

One of the major objectives relates to a standardized nomenclature –the European Materials modelling ontology “EMMO” – aiming to facilitate information exchange and interoperability between a variety of models and software tools in the area of electronic, atomistic, mesoscopic and continuum descriptions of materials.

The article will indicate a possible path of interoperability between scientists, engineers and tools aiming at “engineering the material” with the FEM community more focusing on “engineering with materials” .The FEM community increasingly is interested in improving and combining simulations at the component scale also eventually even in including the use of local materials properties.

This potential path is based on an HDF5 type description of materials allowing both a statistical and a spatially resolved of microstructure data being easily exchangeable between simulations and experiments and also between simulations at different scales. Respective simulation scenarios can be deployed as workflows on simulation platforms and on future materials modelling marketplaces.
