"Design of Structural Materials using Reduced Order Mesoscale Models"
September 27 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM - Birck 2001 - Guest Speaker: Michael Demkowicz
Abstract: Computational materials science brings a physics-based materials design capability within reach. However, design of structural materials for strength and stability is challenging because it deals with inherently collective mechanisms operating at multiple time and length scales. I will illustrate a design strategy built on reduced order mesoscale models, which afford simplified descriptions of the essential physics of complex, collective materials phenomena. To illustrate this approach, I will describe the design of interfaces for resistance to degradation induced by implanted helium. I will conclude by discussing how Bayesian methods may be used to infer and validate reduced order mesoscale models from heterogeneous data.
