The GM Collaborative Research Laboratory on Computational Materials is a partnership to develop computer simulations that predict the mechanical properties of materials used in automotive applications. These simulations are used to develop materials with enhanced performance and are guided and verified by experiments. Key research includes the development of lightweight materials, as an enabler for developing more energy efficient products, and characterization of irreversible deformation and damage in Li insertion battery materials. Researchers from the Materials and Processes group at General Motors, and the Solid Mechanics and Materials groups at Brown collaborate on all projects.
