Over the last few years, the development of multiscale methods in a stochastic setting for uncertainty quantification and reliability analysis of composite materials and structures, as well as the integration of stochastic methods into a multiscale framework are becoming an emerging research frontier. This Mini-Symposium aims at presenting recent advances in the field of multiscale analysis and design of random heterogeneous media. In this respect, topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Random field modeling of heterogeneous media
- Efficient simulation of random microstructure/morphology
- Finite element solution of multiscale stochastic partial differential equations
- Stochastic finite element (SFE) analysis of composite materials and structures
- Methods for improving the efficiency of Monte Carlo simulation
- Efficient algorithms to accelerate the SFE solution of multiscale problems
- Large-scale applications
