new publication

We are pleased to announce that a new book by Tadeusz Burczyński, Maciej Pietrzyk, Wacław Kuś, Łukasz Madej, Adam Mrozek, Łukasz Rauch entitled “Multiscale Modelling and Optimisation of Materials and Structures” has been recently published by Wiley, 2022.

Multiscale Modelling and Optimization of Materials and Structures presents an important and challenging area of research that enables the design of new materials and structures with better quality, strength and performance parameters as well as the creation of reliable models that take into account structural, material and topological properties at different scales. The authors’ approach is four-fold; 1) the basic principles of micro and nano scale modeling techniques; 2) the connection of micro and/or nano scale models with macro simulation software; 3) optimization development in the framework of multiscale engineering and the solution of identification problems; 4) the computer science techniques used in this model and advice for scientists interested in developing their own models and software for multiscale analysis and optimization.

The authors present several approaches such as the bridging and homogenization methods, as well as the general formulation of complex optimization and identification problems in multiscale modelling. They apply global optimization algorithms based on robust bioinspired algorithms, proposing parallel and multi-subpopulation approaches in order to speed-up computations, and discuss several numerical examples of multiscale modeling, optimization and identification of composite and functionally graded engineering materials and bone tissues. "Multiscale Modelling and Optimization of Materials and Structures" is thereby a valuable source of information for young scientists and students looking to develop their own models, write their own computer programs and implement them into simulation systems.  

  • Describes micro and nano scale models developed by the authors along with case studies of analysis and optimization
  • Discusses the problems of computing costs, efficiency of information transfer, effective use of the computer memory and several other aspects of development of multiscale models
  • Includes real physical, chemical and experimental studies with modern experimental techniques
  • Provides a  valuable source of  information for young scientists and students looking to develop their own models, write their own computer programs, and implement them into simulation systems.
