Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Shock-Wave Impact Failure in Hard and Soft Matter
Understanding the mechanisms of failure in materials on various length- and time scales is a prerequisite for the design of new materials with desired superior properties such as high toughness or strength. On the macroscopic scale, many materials such as concrete or ceramics may be viewed as being homogeneous; however, on the scale of a few microns these materials often exhibit an inhomogeneous polyhedral granular structure which is known to influence its macroscopic mechanical and optical properties, see e.g. Steinhauser .
