Method of movable cellular automata as a tool for simulation within the framework of mesomechanics
The proposed MCA method is based on mesomechanics of heterogeneous media [4, 5, 9]. It is connected first with the ability to describe the material as a set of structural elements of deformation . The role of the structural unit in the MCA method is played by the element (movable cellular automaton). The expressions of interparticle interactions used, as well as the rules of changing the state of the elements, allow us to simulate a wide range of phenomena including melting, chemical reactions, and phase transformations. The characteristic size of the element and its properties are defined based on the features of the model constructed in the framework of mesomechanics as described in . Therefore the MCA method as a computational technique allows us to realize the principles of mesomechanics when simulating material response to external loading of different types. This method is highly recommended in computer-aided design of new materials.
