The proposed approach combines the parallel evolutionary algorithm and the conjugatedgradient optimization technique.

The main goal of the optimization is to find stable arrangements of carbon atoms under imposed conditions (e.g. density, shape and size of the unit cell). Such configurations correspond to the minimal values of the total potential energy of the atomic system. Thus, the fitness function is formulated as the total potential energy of the atoms. Interactions between carbon atoms are modeled using Adaptive Intermolecular Reactive Bond Order potential. The parallel approach used in computations allows significant reduction of computation time. Validation of the achieved results and example of the model of new 2D material obtained using presented method were presented in this paper. The numerical scalability tests of the algorithm were performed on the IBM BlueGene/Q supercomputer.

The numerical modeling of shortpulse laser interaction with thin metal films is considered. The hyperbolic twotemperature model describing the temporal and spatial evolution of the lattice and electrons temperatures in the irradiated metal is applied. This model consists of four equations: two equations concern the electron and lattice temperatures; the later ones determine the dependencies between heat fluxes and temperatures. The shortpulse laser interaction with the film is taken into account by introducing an internal volumetric heat source to the equation describing the electron temperature. The equations concerning the electrons and lattice temperatures are joined by coupling factor G, which characterizes the energy exchange between phonons and electrons. The relations between electron heat flux and electron temperature and between the lattice heat flux and lattice temperature contain the parameters ?e and ?l, respectively. The parameter ?e is the relaxation time of free electrons in metals; the parameter ?l is the relaxation time in phonon collisions. The onedimensional problem is analyzed. (Heat transfer in the direction perpendicular to the thin film is taken into account.) The nonflux conditions can be accepted at the front surface irradiated by a laser pulse and the back surface. The initial conditions are also assumed. The direct problem is solved by the explicit scheme of the finite difference method. The results of the computations are partially compared with the experimental data available in literature. The inverse problem discussed here consists in the simultaneous identification of three parameters, namely, the coupling factor G and relaxation times ?e and ?l. To solve such a problem, the electron temperature history at the irradiated surface of the thin film is taken into account. The inverse problems can be formulated as optimization problems and solved by means of bioinspired algorithms. The objective function is formulated on the basis of the known measured and numerical simulated values of temperature. The minimization of the objective function allows one to find the design variables vector, which may contain the parameters of the coupling factor and time coefficients in the presented case. The inverse problems are illdefined problems, and the identification may lead to different results with the same objective function value. The objective function can have many local minima, and therefore the bioinspired algorithm is used in the paper.

The identification process allows one to identify properties (like material constants, geometry) in microscale on the basis of measurements performed for macroscale. The presented approach assumes stochastic material properties in microscale. The identification problem is formulated as minimization of a functional which represents a distance between measured and theoretical values of displacements and strains. The Monte Carlo method combined with the finite element method is used to obtain theoretical displacements and strains values. The identification problem is solved with use of an evolutionary algorithm. Keywords:identification, stochastic, multiscale, FEM Affiliations:

A twoscale analysis of the bone is considered and the problem of identification, formulated as an inverse problem, is examined as an important stage of the modelling process. The human femur bone, built form cancellous and cortical bone, is taken as an example of an n osseous tissue, and the computational multiscale approach is considered. The methodology presented in the paper allows one to analyze the twoscale model with the use of computational homogenization. The representative volume element (RVE) is created for the microstructure of the basis of microCT scans. The macro and micro model analyses are performed by using the finite element method. The identification of trabeculae material parameters on the microlevel is considered as the minimization problem which is solved using evolutionary computing.
