- Reviews the current state of the art of multiscale materials modeling, including fundamental models and software, as well as existing methods for bridging scales.
- Presents a detailed reference list and annotated table of relevant materials modeling software and tools.
- Identifies more than 30 gaps and limitations in multiscale materials modeling, ranked by difficulty and potential impact.
- Details 16 recommendations that address bridging of materials models across length and time scales. Each recommendation description includes:
- Required personnel or expertise
- Relevant length scale regimes
- Specific and actionable tactics
- Projected implementation timeframes
Modeling Across Scales provides practical, concrete guidance in overcoming the challenge of effectively linking materials models across length and time scales and represents a significant milestone on the pathway to accelerating materials-based technological innovations. Compiled by a team of internationally recognized experts, the project was organized by TMS and sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Materials Measurement Laboratory.
