Table of Contents

The role of ab initio electronic structure calculations in multiscale modelling of materials; Modelling dislocation behaviour at the continuum level; Phase field modelling of material microstructure; Mesoscale modelling of grain growth and microstructure in polycrystalline materials; Finite element and homogenisation modelling of materials; Grain-continuum modelling of material behaviour; Coupled atomistic/continuum modelling of plasticity in materials; Multiscale modelling of carbon nanostructures; Multiscale modelling of structural materials.

Description

Multiscale materials modelling offers an integrated approach to modelling material behaviour across a range of scales from the electronic, atomic and microstructural up to the component level. As a result, it provides valuable new insights into complex structures and their properties, opening the way to develop new, multi-functional materials together with improved process and product designs. Multiscale materials modelling summarises some of the key techniques and their applications.

The various chapters cover the spectrum of scales in modelling methodologies, including electronic structure calculations, mesoscale and continuum modelling. The book covers such themes as dislocation behaviour and plasticity as well as the modelling of structural materials such as metals, polymers and ceramics. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Multiscale materials modelling is a valuable reference for both the modelling community and those in industry wanting to know more about how multiscale materials modelling can help optimise product and process design.
