Predictive Design Technologies, LLC has been awarded a Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I grant for "Optimization Using Metamodeling in the Context of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME)"

PDT proposes to develop innovative metamodeling (quick response) toolkits for the manufacturing industry to improve manufacturing quality and efficiency through virtual manufacturing, which could be run on laptop computers and are calibrated with the results from large-scale finite element simulations that are run in high performance computing environments.
