Symposium Technical Description

A fundamental challenge in solid mechanics is predicting structural failure and reliability given the nonlinear, heterogeneous, and random microstructure of most engineering materials. Multiscale numerical methods (MNM) are an active and rich topic of investigation. Their primary goal is to bridge length scales in order to adequately represent the physics and uncertainty introduced by a heterogeneous and random microstructure. One of the challenges is seeking a proper balance of physical realism at the microscale so that calculations are tractable while at the same time including adequate representation of the variability and emergent phenomena, e.g., localization. Another challenge is the development of a posteriori errorestimation techniques to bound material model-form errors arising from the use of macroscale constitutive models. Still another challenge, is the development of experimental methods for validation. Finally, the stochastic nature of the problem – arguably the primary motivation behind multiscale modeling – is often difficult to address because the models are 1 Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary computationally expensive, precluding the application of standard forward uncertainty propagation methods.

This symposium follows a similarly organized session at the 13th USNCCM and strives to bring together researchers from material science, the field of uncertainty quantification, and computational science and engineering to share accomplishments and lesson’s learned and to discuss new research in the following topics:
• strategies for tractable multiscale simulation;
• improved physical realism at the microscale within multiscale simulations;
• crack/damage propagation on the finescale;
• multiphysics in multiscale simulations;
• efficient forward propagation of uncertainty through multiscale numerical methodologies;
• material model-form error estimation for UQ;
• multiscale experimental methods; and
• multiscale techniques that do not filter out emergent phenomena at the macroscale.
