UTRC high performance computing project among first chosen by Energy Department to advance U.S. manufacturing and energy technology

WASHINGTON, D.C. – United Technologies Research Center (UTRC), the innovation engine of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), is among the first to be selected for funding and partnerships with national labs under the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Program.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) leads the program, with Lawrence Berkeley and Oak Ridge National Laboratories (LBNL and ORNL) as strong partners.

UTRC, located in East Hartford, Connecticut, will partner with ORNL and LLNL to develop and deploy simulation tools that predict the material microstructure during the additive manufacturing process to ensure that critical aircraft parts meet design specifications for strength and fatigue resistance, under a project titled, "Integrated Predictive Tools for Customizing Microstructure and Material Properties of Additively Manufactured Aerospace Components."
