Special Session Call for Papers:
Special Session: CC2015-09
Multi-Scale Modelling of Materials with Heterogeneous Microstructure
Session Aims and Scope
This session focuses on recent developments in multi-scale modelling of variety of materials with heterogeneous microstructure. Papers on structural and constitutive behaviour of materials incorporating their heterogeneities with various geometries and appearing at different material scales into computational models are welcome. Special attention will be paid to men-made materials with complicated porous or cellular microstructure such as concrete, ceramics, metal foams, porous polymers, glass and rubbers. Papers related to natural multi-scale materials like animal tissues (e.g. trabecular bone), wood, cork, bamboo or coral are also welcome.

Papers should be devoted (but not limited to) modelling of material deformation, constitutive behaviour, energy absorption or energy storing, simulations, development of multi-scale models, microstructure description, computer tomography observations, FEM, XFEM or mesh-less microstructural modelling, identification of material properties on several length scales, identification of deformation mechanisms (bending, buckling, plasticity and fracture), fluid-structure interactions and microstructural optimizations.

For specific questions regarding the scope of this session please contact the organisers:
  • Professor J. Nemecek, Czech Techical University in Prague, Czech Republic, (jiri.nemecek AT and
  • Professor O. Jirousek, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague, Czech Republic, (jirousek AT

Please note that papers that are found to fall outside the scope of this session may be considered for other sessions.
