Modeling Across Scales:
A Roadmapping Study for Connecting Materials Models and Simulations Across Length and Time Scales
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.
- 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
