MS-002 Advances in polygonal and polyhedral finite elements

Polyhedrons occur extensively in nature. Polygonal and polyhedral finite elements (PFEM) have increasingly been known in both academic and industrial research. They offer highly computational efficiency and are more flexibility in mesh design for arbitrary geometries. This mini-symposium aims at highlighting both theoretical and applicable aspects of advanced polygonal and polyhedral finite elements. Especially, recent developments of topology optimization using PFEM integrated with additive manufacturing through 3D printing will be highly recommended

MS-003 Computational Damage and Fracture Modeling in Solids and Structures

The accurate and realistic modeling and simulation of damage and fracture processes of engineering materials and structures have been extensively studied in the literature. Many theoretical and computational models have been introduced and developed in an accurate and effective manner to characterize material behavior with softening regimes. Their efficiency has been demonstrated in different levels of applications in a wide range of engineering fields. Although the recent noteworthy contributions, mathematically well-posed models, physically sound, and appropriate methods for the entire description of softening regimes and failure process in solids and structures still need to be developed. The aim of this particular MS is bring together researchers/scientists working on the formulation and/or numerical analysis of methods in computational damage and fracture mechanics, including but not limited to the following strategies: continuum damage models; isogeometric analysis; extended/generalized finite element methods; boundary element method, meshfree particle methods; peridynamics; phase-field approaches to fracture; discontinuous Galerkin methods; and cohesive fracture models.

MS-004 Multiscale Approaches Bridging Atomistic and Continuum Domains

Traditionally, on macroscales continuum mechanics and its numerical implementations such as the finite element method (FEM) have proven to be a very useful tool for studying the macroscopic properties and responses of various engineering systems and found many practical applications from the design of automobiles and airplanes to the analysis of turbulent flows. However, as nanotechnology advances, the size of devices continues to shrink to sub-micrometer levels, where the basic assumptions of continuum mechanics eventually break down. Thus, to go beyond the phenomenology of engineering constitutive relations and properly model micro/nanoscale systems, it is necessary to discard the continuum approximation and to model the system as a collection of discrete particles, i.e., atoms. In recent decades, atomistic simulations have made significant contributions to modeling materials and have been indispensable in developing and testing predictive models for material properties based on the fundamental understanding of atomic-level processes. However, even with the rapid advances in computer performance and numerical methodologies there still exists a disparity of many orders of magnitude in length and time scales between macroscopic systems and atomistic models that can be simulated. Thus, there are very urgent needs for developing multiscale methodology that can span both atomic and macroscopic scales. In recent years, a large number of atomistic-continuum coupling methods have been developed with the goal of reproducing the results of the fully-atomistic model at lower computational cost. The aims of this mini-symposium are to present the state-of-the-art techniques in this field and to discuss recent advances and key open challenges. Examples include, but are not limited to, temperature effects, non-equilibrium systems, thermal coupling at the interface of atomistic and continuum domains, and temporal acceleration in dynamics simulations.

MS-026 Novel Methods for Structural Damage Modeling, Detection and Identification

This MS aims to bring together academic scientists and industrial researchers working on novel efficient structural damage modeling, detection and identification methods. Structural health monitoring and damage identification, together with advanced method of signal processing and the structural mechanics modeling method has become an active filed in recent years. More and more industrial and academic researchers have recognized the need for the development of robust platforms able to i) detect damage, preferably during operation of an engineering structure, ii) identify the type and size of the detected damage and quantify its criticality through estimating the remaining operational time of the structure. Focal point of these objectives is the accurate representation of damaged structures via data and/ or physics driven approaches and to develop efficient detection and identification methods.

The MS will focus on, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Multi-scale damage modeling methods
  • Wave-damage interaction modeling
  • Damage detection methods and application
  • Damage identification methods and application
  • Bayesian and AI identification methods
  • Uncertainty quantification in structural damage detection and identification

MS-032 Concurrent multiscale modeling from electrons to finite elements

The state-of-art super computers can explicitly deal with atoms in order of billions, which are about the atoms within one micron cube. It is unlikely in near future that the brutal force atomistic modeling can solve engineering material systems that involve physical phenomena across 10 orders of magnitude in length scale, such as fracture. Finite element modeling cannot reach the accuracy, but the atomistic modeling cannot fit the size requirements. Multiple length scale modeling is required to perform atomics (as well as quantum) simulations over macro scales. It requires the coupling between finite elements to the atoms and electrons side-by-side (hands-shaking). Such concurrent multi-length scalemodeling is very challenging. Talks are solicited for both the development of algorithms and applications of concurrent multi-length scale modeling in computational mechanics, such as Quasi-Continuum method, coupled atomistic and discrete dislocation method, concurrent atomistic-continuum method, multiscale coarse-graining method, super-atom method, dissipative particle dynamics, coarse-grained molecular dynamics, micromorphic theory, and atomistic field theory. This minisymposium (numbered as MS-032) is dedicated to concurrent multi-length scale modeling. Some of the topics of interest are:

  • Multiscale modeling from Finite elements (All FEMs, including XFEM and meshfree) to atomistic;
  • Quantum mechanics – molecular mechanics couplings;
  • Full spectrum multiscale couplings (FEM/MM/QM and more);
  • All the methodologies and applications are welcome.
Contributions that integrate experimental and computational approaches in mechanics and materials are particularly encouraged.

MS-036 Experimental and modelling analysis of Residual Stresses in Additive Manufacturing

Due to the high thermal gradients and property changes in the powder, melt and solidified material in additive manufacturing, large residual stresses arise in the build. This can lead to undesired distortions, as well as the formation of defects, crack initiation, propagation and ultimate reduction in the mechanical strength and structural integrity. The main aim of this Mini-symposium is to provide a platform for academic scientists and industrial researchers to exchange ideas and recent findings in optimizing the additive manufacturing processes by experimental observation andnumerical simulation to minimize residual stress and distortions. The MS will focus on, but will not  be limited to, the following topics:

MS-039 Semi-analytical methods: Recent advances and applications

Among the large number of methods in Computational Mechanics, a particular subclass of approaches can be classified as being 'semi-analytical' or 'semi-discrete' in nature. In general, such methods rely on a numerical discretization of only one or two of the spatial coordinates thus requiring some sort of analytical expansion to express the approximate solution to a partial differential equation in three dimensions.

Examples for typical semi-analytical concepts include (but are not limited to) the Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method (SBFEM), Thin Layer Method (TLM), Semi-Analytical Finite Elements (SAFE), Trefftz method, boundary element method and Spectral Elements.

This minisymposium aims to discuss recent advances and applications of such methods, to bring together researchers who apply similar semi-analytical concepts in different fields of study
