Midwest Mechanics Seminar
Variational Multiscale Modelling Of Soft Materials Based On Elastic Networks Models
Friday, March 23, 2018
11 a.m.-12 p.m.
1610 Engineering Hall
Patrick Le Tallec, Professor in the Department of Mechanics at Ecole Polytechnique, France, will explain why and how to go beyond the affine assumption through a local variational approach which minimizes the local free energy of the microstructure in the configuration space under a macroscopic deformation constraint to be expressed as a maximal path constraint.
