Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in the minisymposium “Nonlocal Theories and Multiscale Methods for Complex Material Behavior” that we are organizing at the 12th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XII) to be held on July 24-29, 2016 in Seoul, Korea, jointly with the 6th Asia-Pacific Congress on Computational Mechanics (APCOM VI).

The goal of this minisymposium is to bring together researchers working with nonlocal theories and multiscale methods to learn about recent developments in their mathematical analysis, computational modeling, software development, and engineering applications.

Below you can find more information about the conference and the minisymposium.

MINISYMPOSIUM ABSTRACT:
Simulation of complex material behavior presents huge challenges in computational science and engineering nowadays. Overcoming those challenges requires the development of novel mathematical models and computational methods. Examples of such challenges in classical solid mechanics include the characterization of the microstructure dependence of the material response, as well as the simulation of material failure and damage; similarly, description of anomalous diffusion and transport represents a challenge in classical theories. Nonlocal theories, such as those based on gradient-dependent and integral-type models, offer alternative approaches that avoid difficulties arising in classical local theories in the description of complex material behavior. Computational implementations of nonlocal models, however, are significantly more expensive than corresponding simulations using classical local models. Furthermore, simulations based on nonlocal models often pose a difficulty in the imposition of boundary conditions. Multiscale coupling strategies that bridge local and nonlocal models seem to provide a solution to both the computational expense and the boundary treatment of nonlocal models. Multiscale methods, in general, refer to the class of mathematical and computational techniques for the simulation of problems that exhibit characteristic features at multiple scales. Several of these methods have been proposed in past years for the effective prediction of the material response in, e.g., composites and heterogeneous media. This minisymposium invites contributions on recent developments on nonlocal theories and multiscale modeling for the simulation of complex material behavior.
