This minisymposium provides a forum to present computational multiscale/multiphysics approaches for studying the physical and chemical behavior of complex materials and structures. Small scale numerical simulation methods such as Molecular Mechanics (MM), Molecular Dynamics (MD), DFT method are expected to be used for understanding mechanism of small scale material behavior. Micro and meso scale models such as micro-mechanics models and Phase Field Model are used to bridge between smaller scale and larger scale. In continuum scale, macro-continuum mechanics models through Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are expected to be implemented. These approaches lead to the prediction of the macroscopic behavior of complex materials and structures. Integrated efforts on these approaches will promote the reliable design and performance evaluation of complex materials and structures. During the minisymposium, participants are expected to discuss state-of-the-art characterization and property evaluation tools adopting multiscale/Multiphysics approaches, application and integration of such tools, and findings from analyses on the engineered and natural complex materials and structures.

Topics of applications include:

- Performance evaluation of multiphysical responses of crystalline, ceramics, and polymers, and soft matter materials
- Prediction of damage, fracture, and fatigue behavior of complex materials and structures
- Characteristics identification of inelastic behavior with linear/nonlinear models.
