Title: ICME Guided Development of Advanced Cast Aluminum Alloys for Automotive Engine Applications (ADAPA)

Abstract

Project Objectives: To develop a new class of advanced, cost competitive aluminum casting alloys providing a 25% improvement in component strength relative to components made with A319 or A356 alloys using sand and semi-permanent casting processes for high-performance engine applications. To demonstrate the power of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) tools for accelerating the development of new materials and processing techniques, as well as to identify the gaps in ICME capabilities. To develop comprehensive cost models to ensure that components manufactured with these new alloys do not exceed 110% of the cost using incumbents alloys A319 or A356. To develop a technology transfer and commercialization plan for deployment of these new alloys in automotive engine applications. The key targets and baseline are shown in the table below.
