The Priority Programme “DaMic – Data-driven alloy and microstructure design of sustainable structural metals” from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) supports research proposals from Germany-based researchers to develop digital methods for designing sustainable and recycling-adapted structural metals, focusing on steel and aluminum, reducing critical elements, and improving recyclability and sustainability of these materials. Proposal must include experts from both mechanics and materials science.

Project proposals are expected to address the following aspects:

  • direct improvement of the recyclability and sustainability of steel or aluminium materials through data-driven design and presentation of the expected sustainability improvement; 
  • establishment of PSP linkages on the basis of experimental data and/or physics-based models or combinations thereof as well as their representation and analysis using data-based surrogate models;
  • development of automated inverse design approaches and application to at least one aspect of the PSP linkages, e.g. interaction of composition, process and microstructure or microstructure and effective properties;
  • further development and application of experimental and numerical high-throughput methods for capturing the microstructure and its evolution as well as for property prediction;
  • active contribution to cross-project data acquisition and analysis

Initial funding of up to 3 years is provided.

Interested researchers are invited to participate in a preparatory meeting to network potential sub-projects. The one-day meeting will take place on 2 October 2024 at Frankfurt Airport. To participate, please register by 30 August 2024.

Applications close on November 18, 2024.
