WhatsCracking Cell Fracture Prediction Application

DuraMAT 2.0 Project

Multi-Scale, Multi-Physics Model

Category: Mechanics and Cracking

Recipient NREL (PI: Bosco, Nick)

Subs None

Status Awarded - Spark

Abstract This program will integrate an existing numerical method into a user-friendly Application (App) which will report the probability of silicon PV module cell fracture for any combination of module architecture, materials, and loading. The created App will not require finite element modeling software nor expertise.
