Description

We are developing object-oriented computational tools for the analysis of materials with complex microstructures. Starting from a digitized micrograph, the program identifies features in the image, assigns material properties to them, generates a finite element mesh, and performs virtual measurements. The goal is to build a computational platform that can predict the macroscopic behavior of a material from knowledge of its microscopic geometry, incorporating a wide variety of physical phenomena and using a modular structure that allows new physics to be added easily.

More information is available at http://www.ctcms.nist.gov/oof/. Opportunities exist in image analysis, materials science, physics, and computer science.
