Machine-Learning Engine Quickly Dials in on Ideal Aerospace Heat-Exchanger Material
Intellegens, a developer of machine-learning (ML) technology for use in additive manufacturing (AM) simulation and process software, has collaborated with GKN Aerospace to use the Intelligens Alchemite ML engine to help develop a titanium-alloy composition with the highest thermal conductivity possible without diminishing mechanical properties. The team considered 20 physical properties across 256 historical alloys to generate an ML model of properties of interest, and then ran Alchemite optimization for high thermal conductivity and strength, to eventually arrive at a proposed alloy.
