M03: Microstructure Evolution in Applied Materials: Process to Property

Belongs to:
TopicM: Modelling and Simulation

Modern industrial societies rely on a wide range of materials. Regarding efficiency in the consumption of resources and energy, enormous efforts have to be undertaken in the future to guarantee sustainable growth. This symposium will focus its attention to the modeling of materials at the microstructure and grain structure levels. The goal will be to present the latest developments in all types of modelling techniques that address the levels of microstructure and grain structure evolution during processing and during service. Special emphasis shall be given to the prediction of properties based on microstructural criteria. Different approaches as mean-field, phase field, level set, front tracking, cellular automaton, Monte Carlo, finite element, discrete element, mesh-free methods are welcomed. We invite contributions concerned (but not limited to) with microstructural-driven phenomena such as 

  • Diffusion controlled phase transitions
  • Mixed mode and massive transformations
  • Ideal grain growth, drag effect and abnormal grain growth
  • Texture evolution during large deformation with plastic activity
  • Effect of chemo-mechanical coupling on microstructure evolution
  • Microstructure evolution in plasma-facing materials
  • Recrystallization and recovery
  • Damage and fracture related to microstructures
