Scientific Overview

This workshop will seek to integrate mathematical, computational, and physics based approaches to the multiscale modeling of materials with defects. While many new multiscale methods have been recently proposed, new theory is needed to validate and optimize multiscale computational methods. Further, most multiscale methods are not applicable to problems considering defects or other nonuniform microstructural features. Material defects thus call for new homogenization theory. The workshop will promote the further development of multiscale modeling of materials defects.

It is the goal of the workshop to bring together mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, materials scientists and engineers who work in the area of materials defects. We expect this workshop will attract junior as well as senior participants.

This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
