MS-021 Concurrent multiscale modeling from electrons to finite elements

The state-of-art super computers can explicitly deal with atoms in order of billions, which are about the atoms within one micron cube. It is unlikely in near future that the brutal force atomistic modeling can solve engineering material systems that involve physical phenomena across 10 orders of magnitude in length scale, such as fracture. Finite element modeling cannot reach the accuracy, but the atomistic modeling cannot fit the size requirements. Multiple length scale modeling is required to perform atomics (as well as quantum) simulations over macro scales. It requires the coupling between finite elements to the atoms and electrons side-by-side (hands-shaking). Such concurrent multi-length scalemodeling is very challenging. Talks are solicited for both the development of algorithms and applications of concurrent multi-length scale modeling in computational mechanics, such as Quasi-Continuum method, coupled atomistic and discrete dislocation method, concurrent atomistic-continuum method, multiscale coarse-graining method, super-atom method, dissipative particle dynamics, coarse-grained molecular dynamics, micromorphic theory, and atomistic field theory. This minisymposium is dedicated to concurrent multi-length scale modeling. Some of the topics of interest are:

  • Multiscale modeling from Finite elements (All FEMs, including XFEM and meshfree) to atomistic;
  • Quantum mechanics – molecular mechanics couplings;
  • Full spectrum multiscale couplings (FEM/MM/QM and more);
  • All the methodologies and applications are welcome.

Contributions that integrate experimental and computational approaches in mechanics and materials are particularly encouraged.

MS-027 Modeling and Simulation for Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM), known as 3D printing, has attracted increasing interest from the community of researchers in the past decades, owing to the advances in printing materials and high-precision of printing technology that allow to fabricate organic and complex structures, which are challenging for traditional manufacturing methods. The difficulties surrounding the structural design for AM are hot topics, including residual stresses, undesirable microstructures, length scale control, as well as the challenge of computational costs for large scale structures. Modeling and simulation are a significant tool inherent in material and structure design for AM. The main objective of this mini-symposium is to provide a forum to discuss ongoing modeling and simulation techniques applied to AM. The presentations include (but not limit to):

  • Simulation process to predict residual stresses/deformations and surface topology.
  • Modelling of materials considering effects of printing direction related to microstructural anisotropy.
  • Modeling and simulation of functionally graded materials, tissue engineering scaffolds, bioinspired composites, etc.
  • Modeling of novel material systems.
  • Multiscale topology optimization of lightweight materials for AM.
  • Computational methods for material and structure design for AM.
  • Topology optimization with structural feature control (length scale, multiple length scale, porosity,...) for AM

MS-030 New methods of approximate static calculations

The bearing systems of e.g. buildings due to application of appropriate complex methods of structural analyses are safe and constructed in an economic way. Comprehensive structural analyses are not necessary in each stage of the engineering design. In some cases application of methods of approximate static calculations are advised or required in order to get a reliable base for the preliminary considerations of numerous variants of possible technical solutions. Conclusions following from such considerations will indicate the most efficient way to obtain the bearing system having the assumed features. The Mini-Symposium is intended as a platform for presentation of such new methods of the approximate analyses.

MS-031 Stochastic BEM in Fracture Mechanics

Various deterministic methods for analysis of engineering fracture problems have been well developed in the framework of the traditional theory of fracture mechanics. However, due to the inherent uncertainties in crack geometry, material properties and external loadings, deterministic analysis cannot provide a complete picture of reality for structures with cracks. Probabilistic fracture mechanics, which combines the classical theory of fracture mechanics with the probability theory, provides statistical characteristics of cracked structures with uncertain parameters. Owing to the unique advantage of BEM in the analysis of cracked structures, stochastic BEM has proved to be an effective approach to the probabilistic problems of fracture mechanics.

The goal of this mini-symposium is to bring together researchers working on BEM in probabilistic fracture mechanics. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent advances in probabilistic fracture mechanics
  • Stochastic boundary element method
  • Fracture reliability analysis of cracked structures with uncertainties
  • Fatigue life prediction of cracked structures with uncertainties
  • Random vibration analysis of cracked structures under stochastic loadings
  • Engineering applications of probabilistic fracture mechanics
