About this Project

CSS-TCP - Data Constrained Mater

The objective of the project is to develop a data-constrained modelling methodology and software implementation to advance CSIRO's capability in quantitative 3D characterisation, modelling and visualization of materials microstructures and their bulk properties. Benchmark case studies are conducted in collaboration with CSIRO Business Units to elev... more
