Objectives and Topics

The seminar will focus on various aspects of microstructures in solid mechanics, material science and applied mathematics:

  • theoretical and computational modelling of materials with evolving microstructures (plasticity, damage, phase transitions, electro-magneto- mechanics, thin walled structures, films, dislocations),
  • experimental results on the formation and evolution of microstructure (lamination, phase transformation, phase separation),
  • mathematical analysis, variational formulation, asymptotic analysis, homogenization and relaxation methods, non-convex problems,
  • multiscale methods and other computational tools for the determination of effective properties of micro-heterogeneous materials.

The seminar is intended to give the opportunity to discuss and compare different approaches to the above areas as well as to stimulate and create perspectives for future research. It provides a platform for the interaction among young and established researchers in solid mechanics, mathematics and material science.
