TCC: Two-Scale Coupled Computational Approaches Towards Failure and Fracture

Minisymposium organized by

This minisymposium is dedicated to discussion of recent advances in fracture and failure of materials using methodologies that specifically consider mechanisms interacting across the scales. Scale transitions in space and time, involving at least two scales, are of interest as well as all issues related with the transfer between scales and computational efficiency.

The prime focus on this topic is computational, but multi-scale approaches incorporating experimental input are also relevant.

Topical points of interest for this minisymposium are:
