ABSTRACT

The papers for this special issue are included in Volume 9, Issues 3 and 4, 2011 of International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering and will focus on multiscale modeling and uncertainty quantification of heterogeneous materials. Particular emphasis is given to advanced computational methods which can greatly assist in tackling complex problems of multiscale stochastic material modeling. The papers can be grouped into several thematic topics that include homogenization and computation of effective elastic properties of random composites, development of computational models for large-scale heterogeneous microstructures, stochastic analysis and design of heterogeneous materials, and multiscale models for the simulation of fracture mechanisms in polycrystalline materials.

    The first part which is published in Volume 9, Issue 3 includes the following articles.
  • Homogenization of Fiber-Reinforced Composites with Random Properties Using the Least-Squares Response Function Approach, M. Kaminski
  • Large-Scale Computations of Effective Elastic Properties of Rubber with Carbon Black, Fillers, A. Jean, F. Willot, S. Cantournet, S. Forest, and D. Jeulin
  • Elastic and Electrical Behavior of Some Random Multiscale Highly-Contrasted Composites, F. Willot and D. Jeulin
  • Overall Elastic Properties of Polysilicon Films: A Statistical Investigation of the Effects of Polycrystal Morphology, S. Mariani, R. Martini, A. Ghisi, A. Corigliano, and M. Beghi
  • Variational Formulation on Effective Elastic Moduli of Randomly Cracked Solids, X. F. Xu and G. Stefanou
The second part of the special issue consists of eight papers dealing with the development of computational models for large-scale heterogeneous microstructures, the stochastic analysis and design of heterogeneous materials, and multiscale models for the simulation of fracture mechanisms in poly-crystalline materials.
