Integrated Computational Material Engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline transforming materials science. Computational engineering accelerates materials development, integrates design and manufacturing, and unifies these with the engineering design optimization process, as well as efficiently employs greater accuracy in simulation-based design. Efforts to realize this enormous and complex goal have catalyzed the development of the Engineering Virtual Organization for Cyber Design (EVOCD), which provides a cyberinfrastructure to accumulate and protect the intellectual property pertaining to selected aspects of materials science and engineering that is generated by the participants of the organization, to enforce the quality of that information, and to manage its complexity. The intellectual property includes experimental data, material models and constants, computational tools and software artifacts, and the knowledge pertaining to multiscale physics-based models for selected properties and processes. EVOCD has been developed using open source components augmented with custom modules such as a secure data repository integrated with online model calibration tools.
