Modeling Across Scales:
A Roadmapping Study for Connecting Materials Models and Simulations Across Length and Time Scales
Download ICME Study
Study Features
  • 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.
