Computational multi-scale modeling of solids

ME-414

Lecturer(s) :

Derlet Peter

Language:

English

Summary

This course considers the multi-scale computational modeling of hard-matter systems, with an emphasis on the physical phenomena of matter transport and emergent macroscopic mechanical properties, and how their microscopic origin is coarse grained to the engineering scale of a material component.

Content

Multi-scale modelling of hard-matter systems:

Computational and simulation frameworks:

Keywords

material properties, mass transport, plasticity and strength, multi-scale modelling, numerical algorithms, scientific software and hardware computational frameworks, parallel computing.

Learning Prerequisites

Important concepts to start the course

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

Lectures and practical tutorials will constitute traditional content covering core theoretical concepts and interactive content covering practical use of computational modelling frameworks. It is envisioned that no more than 50% of classroom time, will be spent this way, distributed heterogeneously over the entire semester.

The remaining time will be devoted to project work, involving teams of about four students, focused on a particular engineering/physical problem, and its appropriate numerical solution.

 

Expected student activities

Assessment methods

The project work outcome will lead to a student developed and presented lecture or practical tutorial content. Assessement will be based on this content and the individual's contribution to it.
