Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit your contributions to the following minisymposium: Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Fracture and Fragmentation Processes taking place as part of the Engineering Mechanics Institute conference (JUne 16-19, 2015) at Stanford.

Best Regards,

MS 54: Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Fracture and Fragmentation Processes


Fracture is a fascinating, nonlinear and often dynamic, phenomenon occurring on many scales. In many systems, small-scale perturbations may lead to large scale system fragilities and catastrophic fractures. Understanding the underpinnings of material response at the microscale, including origins of friction and adhesion, and their implications for fracture at macro scale is thus of vital importance to many engineering, biological, and geophysical applications. This MS solicits contributions in all fields related to multiscale physics and computational modeling relevant to fracture and fragmentation processes. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to, (a) multiscale experimental investigations of friction and fracture toughness, (b) constitutive modeling appropriate for modeling friction and adhesion at the microscale, (c) thermodynamics based models for bulk damage, (d) theoretical analysis and experimental observations of crack nucleation and initiation and (e) computational modeling of cohesive fracture and failure.
