Multiscale materials modelling - recent applications

Siegfried Schmauder, University of Stuttgart

In the recent past, multiscale materials modelling became a central idea in understanding present days’ complex composites and in making progress in the development of advanced materials.

The present paper will provide several successfully running multiscale studies dealing with the numerical analysis of pipeline steel weldments, metal/ceramic interfaces and especially fatigue problems of metals, including the virtual determination of the S-N (Wöhler) curve. These studies are employed for a better understanding of physical phenomena in different materials - which lead to their deformation and fracture behavior.
