Talk: Streamlining Materials Design with Intelligent Experimentation
12:30 - 1pm
Designing sheet products and materials can be a painstaking experimental process with plenty of constraints and limitations. Running real-world lab and plant trials is both time consuming and expensive. Simulations can assist trial parameter selection but must carefully consider a wide variety of real-world constraints and situations. The sheet product and material design work flow requires a systematic way to evaluate these constraints to accelerate the innovation and keep up with the emerging sheet product and material design requirements.
In this talk, Vishwanath will share how Novelis, a global aluminum rolling company, overcomes these challenges to run efficient experiments and, in the process, develop novel sheet product and material designs for a variety of use cases. He will focus on a variety of tough to manage variables and how a broad cross section of parameters are tuned. And he’ll touch on the way they apply SigOpt to accelerate their sheet product and material design workflow to derive entirely novel insights.
