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.
