Modeling and Simulation for Complex Material Behavior

Patrick Diehl, Institute for Numerical Simulation
Martin Levesque, Laboratory for Multi-Scale Mechanics

The purpose of this mimisymposium is to bring together experts in computational mathematics, computer science and engineering to exchange results in modeling and simulation of complex material behavior.Emphasis will be put on crack initiation/propagation as well as on and fracture. Topics like the models mathematical development, implementation and experimental validation will be covered. Particular areas of interest for the session include:

1. Analysis of convergence, stability, and accuracy
2. Non-local methods, like peridynamics
3. Comparison of methods for elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic problems
4. Optimal and reduced quadrature techniques
7. Challenging applications in mechanics, including contact and fracture
8. Applications and comparison with experimental data
9. Digital image correlation
