Review of Materials Modelling

(this version IV replaces the “Brochure for Materials Modelling”)

Communication between the fields will be facilitated by a commonly understood vocabulary.This vocabulary has been adapted based on extensive past discussions.

The notion “meta data” has been introduced and we hope it will be used to describe models, simulation and experiment results and facilitate interoperability of different models.

We believe we have proven the vocabulary is useful by applying it to now about 100 project fiches.

Our impressions are that people understand a determination via application size is not unique. People have accepted to classify models according to their physics/chemistry and not via the application size. With this people have accepted the clear separation between the notions "mesoscopic" and "mesoscale".

People have accepted a model is NOT

  • the solver (and they do no longer say "I have a FEM model (and do not know what physics is included))"
  • the application (I have a model of the textile and it says where the fibres are)
  • toolkit (a code containing more than one physics equations)

But the situation between models and constitutive equations remained conflictual and the definition of “model” has been adapted. It contains the physics/chemistry equation and the closure (materials) relation. The Review of MM, like earlier versions, deals with classifying Physics and Chemistry equations, closure relations are mentioned.

Furthermore 27 new fiches are included and this is accompanied by the definition of four new model categories. Some industrial statements on the usefulness of materials models have been added.
