About these proceedings


The symposium focused on novel applications of methods from the calculus of variations to the solid mechanics of materials, including the development of new material models as well as the advancement of the corresponding computational techniques. Specific emphasis was put on the treatment of materials posessing an inherent microstructure and thus exhibiting a behavior which fundamentally involves multiple scales. Among the topic treated in this volume are: Energy-based modeling of material microstructures; modeling of the evolution of material microstructures; micromechanical modeling of shape-memory alloys; variational multiscale methods and associated numerical procedures; and micromechanics of multifield and multiphysics problems.
