Multi-scale Simulation Methods I (Lecture)



Zeit/Ort n.V.

The course will take place in presence. The introductory lectures will be held online.

Please attend the course "Scientific Programming with Python". For further details please refer to the UnivIS page of the course.


These lectures provide a broad overview of simulation methods operating on length scales from the atomistic to the continuum scale. Simulation methods introduced include Molecular Dynamics, equilibrium and kinetic Monte Carlo simulation, mesoscopic methods such as e.g. Dislocation Dynamics and the Phase Field method, and continuum-level modeling of materials behavior in Finite Element simulations. The introduction of methods operating on different scales is complemented by a discussion of multiscale approaches, i.e. the linking of models operating on different scales. For most of the tutorials ‘Python’ will be used as programming language, which will be introduced in a separate short course (see above). This course is accompanied by practicals where the students will have the opportunity to numerically implement ‘one-scale’ models in a hands-on manner. This will be complemented by examples of information passing between different scales and the construction of simple multiscale models.
