ALLOYS BY DESIGN®

ALLOYS THAT FIT

High-performance applications demand high-performance alloys, computationally optimised for your application

WHAT IS “ABD”?

THE END OF
TRIAL-AND-ERROR

The Alloys-by-Design (ABD®) platform uses algorithms based on the latest science, proprietary software, and computing horsepower to predict the performance of millions of different alloys simultaneously, and choose the best optimisation for a particular application. Instead of months or even years of expensive trial-and-error, the ABD® process can reduce the time it takes to recommend a new composition to mere days.

HOW IT WORKS

COMPUTING MILLIONS OF TRADE-OFFS

The ABD® process starts with data – basic data such as the cost, density, and melting and boiling points of different elements; fundamental thermophysical data about the temperatures at which elements form different phases; and calculated data showing how the introduction of different elements affect the physics of the alloys into which they are mixed. The proprietary ABD® algorithms feed this data into scientific models, which allow our engineers to model the performance of millions of different alloy compositions simultaneously, and allow both automated and manual optimisation to select the composition that represents the best trade-off for any application.
