Abstract: This effort was undertaken as a part of the Materials Modeling for Force Protection (MMFP) Military Engineering 6.2 applied research program. One of the main philosophies of MMFP is the creation of a materials-by-design process for predictive properties and material selection capabilities. This report details the capability improvements to facilitate materials-by-design technologies and the collection and characterization of material data to compile and calibrate an integrated materials-by-design model. The Virtual Cement and Concrete Testing Laboratory (VCCTL) was evaluated for suitability in hydration model generation, and various programs were evaluated for initial virtualization of physical elements. To provide model inputs for particle size analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) testing were conducted on a wide variety of constituent materials, and characterization data were processed included herein.
