Spring 2023

Multi-Scale Mdlng of MaterialsONL65607ONL4 -    Huck Beng Chew

Course Description

This course introduces the theoretical foundation of multi-scale methods, and provides students with hands-on modeling and simulation experience. Students will be introduced to a variety of modeling techniques covering the full spectrum of length-scales from atomistics to continuum. The emphasis will be in the use of continuum-based concepts, such as the Principle of Virtual Work and conservation integrals, as bridging techniques to link atomistics and the continuum. The goal is to enable interpretation of material phenomena across different length-scales.
