Overview and Objectives

Complex materials play an essential role in many applications, ranging from turbine blades, car chassis, computer and cell phone cases, battery systems, stretchable and wearable electronics, to biomedical applications. Those materials often operate and must maintain their high performance in harsh environments. The advancement of computationalmethods at multiple scales opens new possibilities for the design of such complex materials and the optimization of their intrinsic properties under extreme events. The bridging of different length and time scales though still represents an area of active research with many unresolved challenges. For example, material degradation is considered as a typical multiscale process, controlled by nanoscale defects, highly affecting the macroscopic material response.

This Symposium will bring together experts in the areas of multiscale computational modeling of complex, hierarchical, nanostructured materials. The symposium is organized in the framework of the Stanford- Columbia-DTU project “Multiscale multiphysics computational mechanics of advanced materials” supported by Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation.


Symposium Topics include but are not limited to

  • • Multiscale modeling of materials
    • Multiphysics modeling of materials
    • Computational materials science
    • Micromechanics of materials
    • Scale bridging and homogenization
    • Materials under extreme environments
    • Hierarchical materials
    • Nanomaterials
    • Biological and natural materials
    • Geomaterials
