Multiscale Methods in Solid Mechanics

Details on our lecture "Multiscale Methods in Solid Mechanics" (formerly "Multiscale Methods in Computational Mechanics")


  • Fundamental concepts of mathematical modelling of physical phenomena and materials over disparate time and length scales
  • Applications of multiscale modeling and simulation in mechanics for material modeling and development, composites, metamaterials and lattice structures
  • Fundamentals of continuum mechanics modeling and finite element analysis
  • Methods for coupling of micro and macro scales
  • Analytical and numerical homogenization methods based on unit cells / representative volume elements
  • Sequential and concurrent multi-scale finite element methods (domain decomposition/multigrid, homogenized constitutive models, FE2)
  • Linear and nonlinear multi-scale FEM for elastic two-scale problems.

Summer term 2023

The lecture is organized in a blended learning format. Learning units with videos, slides, tutorials, and other materials are provided in the Moodle course. Additionally, there will be a weekly interactive lecture session (repetitorium) on Tuesdays at 12:45 for recaps, (group) exercises, hands-on tutorials, and questions. Please register for the course via TUCaN and Moodle for more information.
