Materials with Internal Structure

Multiscale and Multifield Modeling and Simulation

Editors: Trovalusci, Patrizia (Ed.)

  • Bridging the gap between mechanical engineering and material science through the presentation of fundamental, theoretical, experimental and practical aspects of mechanical modeling of materials with complex microstructures and complex behavior
  • Addressed to a general advanced but not strictly specialized audience, stimulating a general understanding of interactions among different conceptions (continuum, computational, experimental mechanics)
  • Short 'position papers' useful for having a general overview of the matter which can inspire new research directions

About this book

The book presents a series of concise papers by researchers specialized in various fields of continuum and computational mechanics and of material science. The focus is on principles and strategies for multiscale modeling and simulation of complex heterogeneous materials, with periodic or random microstructure, subjected to various types of mechanical, thermal, chemical loadings and environmental effects. A wide overview of complex behavior of materials (plasticity, damage, fracture, growth, etc.) is provided. Among various approaches, attention is given to advanced non-classical continua modeling which, provided by constitutive characterization for the internal and external actions (in particular boundary conditions), is a very powerful frame for the gross mechanical description of complex material behaviors, able to circumvent the restrictions of classical coarse–graining multiscale approaches.
