OOF: Finite Element Analysis of Microstructures
OOF Workshop, June 21-22, 2001Lecture Room B, Building 101 (Note room change!)
National Institute of Standards and Technology
100 Bureau Drive
Gaithersburg, MD 20899
Sponsored by the NIST Center for Theoretical and Computational Materials Science.
Sessions both days begin at 9AM.
The workshop will bring together OOF users, potential OOF users, and OOF developers to explore a variety of issues of fundamental importance to improving the paradigm of determining physical properties from material microstructures. The workshop will examine four questions:
- 1) How are people currently using OOF?
- 2) How do they hope to use it in the future?
- 3) What enhancements to OOF will be most useful to the materials research and development community?
- 4) How can we more effectively promote OOF to the materials community, so that mission critical problems can be more readily addressed?
Thursday Morning: Introductory Session, 9:00 AM
A session on the Object-Oriented Finite Element (OOF) philosophy for microstructural simulations, what the code is now, and plans for the future.
