Title:Predictive and Efficient Atomistic to Continuum Hybrid Methods
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Mitchell Luskin, School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota
Abstract:
Many materials problems require the accuracy of atomistic modeling in small regions, such as the neighborhood of a crack tip. However, these localized defects typically interact elastically with a much larger region which cannot be computed atomistically. Materials scientists have attempted to compute solutions to these multiscale problems by coupling atomistic models near the localized defect with continuum models where the deformation is nearly uniform. I will give an introduction to our research to develop predictive and efficient atomistic to continuum coupling methods. Joint work with Matthew Dobson and Christoph Ortner
