DOE Program Seeks to Help Industry Partners Develop Materials for Extreme Conditions

The Energy Department has unveiled a new program that aims to help companies develop lightweight materials that could withstand harsh environments.

DOE said Tuesday industry participants in the High Performance Computing for Materials Program will have access to computational resources and assets at department-funded national laboratories.

The HPC4Mtls program will also offer tools designed to simulate, model and predict materials behavior as well as expertise in the additive manufacturing, computational fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, kinetics and materials modeling areas.

DOE will screen interested companies through a two-phase competitive process and ask participants to cover at least 20 percent of project costs.

The department plans to host a workshop on Oct. 12 in Pennsylvania to discuss the program with commercial, academic and government stakeholders.

The program is sponsored by the DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and part of the department’s HPC4 Energy Innovation Initiative.
