Workshop: Analysis and computation of microstructure in finite plasticity

Date: May 4 - 5, 2015
Venue: Mathematics Center, Endenicher Allee 60, Bonn
Organizers: Sergio Conti, Klaus Hackl, Stefan Müller

Description: The conference will focus on the physical motivation, the mathematical behavior, and the numerical treatment of models of crystal plasticity which include microstructure. Approaches include mathematical analysis, numerical analysis, computational mechanics, material modelling and experiment. Recent analytical progress has been based on methods from the calculus of variations, while in the numerical implementation global optimization algorithms play a central role. The modelling of plasticity stretches over all length scales, from the atomic structure up to macroscopic samples. Specially designed experiments permit to selectively study microstructure formation in simple geometries.
