NOTE - Registration Requirements: As part of theDepartment?s implementationof e-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGHGRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time actions you must complete in ordertosubmit an application through Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and BradstreetData Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, register with the CentralContractor Registration (CCR), register with the credential provider andregister with Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in?GetStarted? at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW ATLEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that theprocessbe started as soon as possible.DE-PS26-05NT42472-04 - Computer-Aided Design of High-Temperature MaterialsThe quest for high-temperature materials is one of the dominant themes inmaterials development for efficient energy systems. High-temperaturematerialsare a fast-moving research area with numerous practical applications.Materialsthat can withstand extremely high temperatures and extreme environments aregenerating considerable attention worldwide; however, designing materialsthathave low densities, elevated melting temperatures, oxidation resistance,creepresistance, and intrinsic toughness encompass some of the most challengingproblems in materials science. Traditional approaches to alloy design haveinvolved the trial-and-error method of adding various alloying elements tothebase alloy and experimentally measuring the effect. This is bestdemonstratedin the previous development of superalloy turbine materials, whereparticularalloying elements are added for their historically known effect on aparticularproperty of the alloy. This process is not suited for true processparameteroptimization, but instead only achieves a ?local minimum? based on thelimitedphase-space explored. To overcome this limitation, and thereby lead to abetter composition in a more efficient research effort, it is desirable tohavea computational approach to alloy design and performance prediction. Thesearchfor high-temperature materials is largely based on traditional,trial-and-errorexperimental methods which are costly and time-consuming. An effective waytoaccelerate research in this field is to use advances in materialssimulationsand high performance computing and communications to guide experiments.Thissynergy between experiment and advanced materials modeling willsignificantlyenhance the synthesis of novel high-temperature materials. The studiesshouldonly address materials of interest to fossil energy conversion systems.To link to the master announcement DE-PS26-05NT42472-00, please click thefollowing link:https://e-center.doe.gov/iips/faopor.nsf/UNID/AFDC3E3018D30D1C8525700C005DB010?OpenDocument
