VTT ProperTune™

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering for Businesses

​​​​​​​​​

VTT ProperTune is a computational modeling -assisted materials design, tailoring and performance evaluation methodology and software platform. It can parse massive amounts of data to virtually model and analyse material behavior on component, microstructural and atomic scales. It is used to optimise a wide variety of material properties such as lifetime endurance, wear and corrosion resistance, and fracture and fatigue durability.

 

VTT ProperTune optimises material design, replacing expensive, time consuming testing and shortening time-to-market for new products by an average of 50%.

We use multiscale modeling to inspect microscale details

Our portfolio of software modules can be integrated to solve specific problems. With ProperTune you can digitally mimic industrial materials and accurately predict how they behave under real service conditions. We can apply accurate modeling to a wide variety of materials and surface coatings such as metals, ceramics, elastomers, plastics, composite structures, sandwich structures and biomaterials, among others.

From material microstructure to full-scale systems

ProperTune enables rapid development and deployment of integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) solutions. This is achieved by using multiscale modeling and material design approaches such as the Process-Structure-Properties-Performance (PSPP) principle.
