Multiscale Modeling of Microstructural Pattern
In this talk, I will give an overview of progress
made to link atomistic and continuum scale
simulations to predict the anisotropic properties
and evolution of internal solid-liquid and
solid-solid interfaces that shape the complex
microstructures of structural materials.
The example of orientation selection in dendritic
evolution will be used to highlight the successes
and challenges of this multiscale modeling effort,
which has been carried out to a large degee
collaboratively within a DOE funded Computational
Materials Science Network during the past few years.
