Adaptive Concurrent Multi-Level Model for Multiscale Analysis of Composite Materials Including Damage

  • Somnath Ghosh

The past few decades have seen rapid developments in the science and technology of a variety of advanced heterogeneous materials like polymer, ceramic, or metal matrix composite, functionally graded materials, and porous materials, as well as various alloy systems. Many of these engineered materials are designed to possess optimal properties for different functions, e.g., low weight, high strength, superior energy absorption and dissipation, high impact and penetration resistance, superior crashworthiness, better structural durability, etc. Tailoring their microstructures and properties to yield high structural efficiency has enabled these materials to provide enabling mission capabilities, which has been a key factor in their successful deployment in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, defense, and other industries.
