Introduction to Mesoscopic Modelling (IMEMO)
Classification: Modelling approaches (B), continuum approaches
Lecturer: Paolo Moretti
Language: English
Contents:

* Basic concepts of mesoscopic modelling and coarse-graining
* From the micro- to the mesoscale: Construction of mesoscale models
* Basic concepts of mesoscopic modelling in fracture
* Failure criteria at the mesoscopic scale
* Cellular automata
* Kinetic Monte Carlo method
* Heterogeneous contact patterns and network models

Objectives:
The students

* understand the advantages offered by mesoscopic modelling
* learn its scope and limitations as opposed to atomistic modelling
* can use atomistic simulation results for construction and parametrization of mesoscopic models
* can name simple examples of fracture problems that can be modelled at the mesoscale
* can identify time- and length-scales that can be dealt with using mesoscopic models
* get an overview of simple simulation protocols of relevance at the mesoscale
