Abstract
Macroscopic properties of solids are inherently connected to their micro- and nano-scale details. For example, the microstructure and defect distribution influence the elastic and plastic properties of a crystal while the details of a defect are determined by its elastic far-field. The goal of multi-scale modelling is to understand such connections between microscopic and macroscopic material behaviour. This workshop brings together researchers working on different aspects of multi-scale modelling of solids: mathematical modelling, analysis, numerical computations, and engineering applications.
