Network Short Course 2

Going up a hill, coming down a mountain
A No2Noise short course on travelling across scales in porous media

Date: 12-13 December, 2019

Location: Physics Building, University Park, The University of Nottingham

Multiscale methods enable us to unravel the intriguing constitutive behaviour of hierarchical, heterogeneous or multi-phase materials. This includes composites, biological or bio-inspired materials, and meta-materials. Over the recent years, a number of multiscale computational approaches have been introduced including homogenization methods, multiscale finite element methods as well as mesh-free and particle methods.
The main objective of this No2Noise short-course is to form a platform for knowledge dissemination and idea exchange vis-à-vis the state-of-the-art in the field of multiscale analysis procedures for materials. It further aims at establishing a discussion forum for advanced multiscale computational techniques and at identifying associated research challenges. Topics relevant to the short course include, but are not limited to, implementations and algorithmic solutions for:

  • Micro-mechanical constitutive behaviour
  • Acoustics
  • Predictive multiscale modelling
  • Data-driven modelling
  • Verification and validation of multiscale methods
