Integrated Computational Materials Engineering of novel ceramics in the ATZ/ZTA system (InCoKer)

InCoKer focuses on the integration of computational engineering in the development of new ceramics in the ATZ/ZTA system (Alumina Toughened Zirconia / Zirconia Toughened Alumina). Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an interdisciplinary approach that uses computer-aided tools and simulations to accelerate and improve the development and optimization of materials. The aim is to use digital methods to improve the service life, material and energy requirements and at the same time reduce waste. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Center HTL and other partners, tailor-made solutions for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) are also developed, including special user apps.
