Material properties emerge from phenomena on scales ranging from Angstroms to millimeters, and only a multiscale treatment can provide a complete understanding. Materials researchers must therefore understand fundamental concepts and techniques from different fields, and these are presented in a comprehensive and integrated fashion for the first time in this book. Incorporating continuum mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, atomistic simulations and multiscale techniques, the book explains many of the key theoretical ideas behind multiscale modeling. Classical topics are blended with new techniques to demonstrate the connections between different fields and highlight current research trends. Example applications drawn from modern research on the thermo-mechanical properties of crystalline solids are used as a unifying focus throughout the text. Together with its companion book, Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics (Cambridge University Press, 2011), this work presents the complete fundamentals of materials modeling for graduate students and researchers in physics, materials science, chemistry and engineering.Read more
- Presents a thorough compilation of the key theoretical underpinnings of multiscale modeling
- Integrates topics from across disciplines, discussing their fundamental assumptions
- Blends classical topics with current research trends to help readers better understand the connections between the different fields
Reviews & endorsements
"This is an exceptional book on the subject, and for more than one reason. First, it is extremely well written. The authors are very clearly talented writers. The text is thought provoking, original and crystal clear (no pun is intended). Second, the book is quite attractive to the eye. It is full with pictures and illustrations, and their captions are very detailed. Only from looking at the figures and reading the captions one can learn a great deal. The important equations appear in a “shaded” box. The whole appearance of the book is very inviting to read."
