JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE
The European Commission's in-house science service
JRC article presenting some of the most often used approaches to modeling polycrystalline aggregates, starting from more simplistic approaches and up to the most state-of-the art approaches that draw on the as-measured properties of the microstructure.
As the Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle. Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.
