Optimizing Lightweight Materials

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

LIFT | Lawerence Livermore National Laboratory

fact sheet

Livermore Lab is working with the LIFT consortium to develop methods for predicting the behavior of new lightweight materials for automobiles and aircraft.

Impact

iconHPC reduces the development time of new lightweight materials.
iconLivermore researchers used computational techniques to predict—ahead of fabrication—the properties of new materials that meet desired performance specifications.
iconProject results indicate that aluminum–lithium alloy could be a cost-effective replacement for the expensive heavier titanium bubs for turbine blades in aircraft engines.
iconNearly 50 million liters of fuel ($26 million) could be saved per year industry-wide.
