Drs. Surya Kalidindi (PI, MSE), David Fullwood (Co-PI, MSE), and Raj Mishra of General Motors Research and Development Center (GM), have received a National Science Foundation: Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry (GOALI) award for their project entitled, "GOALI: Process Design Solutions for Textured Polycrystalline Cubic and Hexagonal Metals: Inverse Solution Methodologies and Experimental Validation."
In partnership with GM, this research will build and validate a novel spectral framework for delivering process design solutions. The new framework for process design, also known as Microstructure Sensitive Design (MSD), will build on recent advances made in Dr. Kalidindi's research group in efficient spectral representations of microstructure-property-processing linkages. The budget for this three-year project is $350,000.
