This minisymposium focuses on computational studies that further the knowledge of the plastic deformation mechanisms and inelasticity in a range of engineering materials. The topics covered by this minisymposium include, but are not limited to:
• New multiscale simulation methods for inelasticity in both crystalline and soft solids
• Atomistic to continuum multiscale methods for connecting atomic scale plasticity to continuum level properties
• Multiphysics simulation methods for non-mechanical causes of inelasticity
• Coupling of phase field model with inelasticity
