VTT ProperTune® is an Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) concept VTT has developed over the last two decades. It uses multiscale modelling for optimal computational material design, replacing expensive, time consuming testing and shortening time-to-market for new products by an average of 50%. It allows you to create microstructurally accurate materials and load in realistic conditions – everything digital.


How to apply material microstructure to full-scale systems?

The core concept of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is to provide a systematic requirement based design approach and provide a digital framework for material discovery, design and optimization exploiting AI/ML technologies. VTT ProperTune® enables rapid development and deployment of ICME solutions. This is achieved by using multiscale modelling and computational material design approaches such as the Process-Structure-Properties-Performance (PSPP) principle.

How to use multiscale modelling
to inspect microscale details?

Our software capabilities can be integrated to solve specific problems. With VTT ProperTune® you can digitally mimic industrial materials and accurately predict how they behave under real service conditions. Material characterization and verification process ensure that results are reliable.

Accurate modelling can be applied to a wide variety of materials and surface coatings such as:

  • metals
  • ceramics
  • elastomers
  • plastics
  • composite structures
  • sandwich structures
  • biomaterials

Universita Degli Studi
Di Padova

The foundation of the University of Padua dates back to 1222, when a group of students moved from Bologna to Padua in search of greater autonomy and independence. Thus, it was that the Paduan studio already from the thirteenth century welcomed congregations of students of different languages and cultures, the nations, from all over Europe. Under the rule of the Serenissima, the University of Padua maintained a profile of profound freedom, including religious freedom, guaranteeing protection from the repressive policies of the Counter-Reformation.

In Padua one could study and teach with a strong independence, even with respect to one’s profession of faith.
In 2022 the University of Padua celebrates its 800th anniversary, a historic milestone that very few universities in the world can boast. To celebrate this important anniversary, the University has chosen to carry out projects to be bequeathed to the next generations, under the banner of its founding values: freedom of research and openness to the world.
