CSD: Connecting scales and disciplines to model fracture

Minisymposium organized by

An amalgamation of diverse disciplines of engineering and science, ranging from continuum mechanics at the macro-scale to quantum chemistry at the atomic level, is essential for developing a comprehensive understanding of the fracture behavior of materials. In line with this principal theme, this mini-symposium aims at providing a platform to discuss recent advances in the computational modeling of fracture, with an emphasis on the multiscale nature of fracture processes at various length and time scales. The primary objective here is to bring researchers together who tackle the problem from different viewpoints such as mechanics, material science, mathematics, physics and chemistry.

Although the primary focus is on computational techniques, contributions encompassing theoretical and experimental methods are also welcome.

Topics of interest to this mini-symposium include, but are not limited to, the following:
