TopicM: Modelling and Simulation
Applied materials like metals and solid-state polymers consist of multiple phases. Material inhomogeneity leads to inhomogeneity in mechanical properties as well as mechanical load and/or external field couples back to internal phase-structure. This symposium will focus its attention on the modeling of applied materials at the microstructure and grain structure levels. Special emphasis shall be given to the effect of chemo-mechanical coupling and the prediction of properties based on microstructural criteria.
We invite contributions concerned with microstructural-driven phenomena such as
- Diffusion controlled phase transitions -Mixed mode and massive transformations
- Texture evolution during severe plastic deformation with plastic activity and twinning
- Effect of chemo-mechanical coupling on microstructure evolution
- Magneto-mechanical coupling in polymers
- Damage and fracture related to microstructures
The symposium summarizes the final results of the DFG Priority program 1713 “chemomechanics.de” and welcomes all foreign contributions.
