QuesTek has extensive experience utilizing Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) technologies combined with our own Materials by Design methodology to rapidly develop new high performance alloys, coatings and other materials.

Below you will find a list of >90 alloy development and modeling projects (with links to project details) that QuesTek has been awarded by the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Office and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Office. We also regularly work on industry-funded projects (commercial aerospace, heavy industry, energy, oil & gas, medical, etc) and receive government funding via other sources.

For questions regarding any of the projects listed below, or about the commercial status and availability of any materials that were developed under each project, please contact us.
