# Non-Equilibrium Evolution of Collective Microdamage and Its Coupling with Mesoscopic Heterogeneities and Stress Fluctuations

## Abstract

In proposing a workshop to discuss “Shock Dynamics and Non-Equilibrium Mesoscopic Fluctuations in Solids”, it was pointed out that: “The existence of mesoscale inhomogeneities and stress fluctuations has certainly been recognized by experimentalists and theoretical analysts. However, the issue of heterogeneous and non-equilibrium shock front dynamics on the mesoscale, has largely been ignored, in spite of the fact that these must strongly influence the phenomena such as fracture and phase transitions.” The following specific questions were posed: (1) “What experimental data are available and what are their implications?” (2) “Are there new mesoscale theories for shock dynamics?” (3) “How do the theories affect the existing fracture and phase transition paradigms?” and (4) “What kinds of new computational and materials models are needed?” [1]
