"Basics on Multiscale Modeling and Simulations Methods, and Show How We Have Used These Methods for Various Polymer Nanocomposite" (30 minutes)

Modeling and simulation techniques are a key component to the efficient development of next-generation composite materials for structural applications. The primary goal of these techniques are to link material structure (molecular, microstructural) with bulk-level properties (e.g. modulus, strength). These so-called 'structure-property relationships' are powerful predictive tools for tailoring composite materials for specific structural components. To construct accurate structure-property relationships requires a wide range of modeling techniques that apply to specific length scales. The goal of this presentation is to present these techniques and to describe how that can be used together in a multi-scale modeling to facilitate material development. The discussion will be tied in with more broad material development efforts: Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) and the Materials Genome Initiative.
