A journey around the different scales involved in the description of matter and complex systems
This book covers the main scales of description of matter, starting at its finest level, the quantum scale, moving through ab-initio, molecular dynamics, coarse grained approaches, to finish at the scale of kinetic theory models that allows a nice compromise between the rich but expensive microscopic descriptions and the computationally cheap but sometimes too coarse macroscopic descriptions. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students, as well as beginners in multi-scale modeling of materials. (4th cover, excerpt from publisher's website)

Microscopic modelling of orientation kinematics of non-spherical particles suspended in confined flows using unilateral mechanics SCHEUER, Adrien; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; CHINESTA, Francisco; KEUNINGS, Roland (Elsevier, 2018)The properties of reinforced polymers strongly depend on the microstructural state, that is, the orientation state of the fibres suspended in the polymeric matrix, induced by the forming process. Understanding flow-induced ...
ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; MEZHER, Rabih; LE CORRE, Steven; AMMAR, Amine; CHINESTA, Francisco (MDPI, 2013)When suspensions involving rigid rods become too concentrated, standard dilute theories fail to describe their behavior. Rich microstructures involving complex clusters are observed, and no model allows describing its ...
ANGEL, Leon; BARASINSKI, Anais; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; CUETO, Elias; CHINESTA, Francisco (Elsevier, 2018)Separated representations at the heart of Proper Generalized Decomposition are constructed incrementally by minimizing the problem residual. However, the modes involved in the resulting decomposition do not exhibit a clear ...
AMMAR, Amine; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; CHINESTA, Francisco; KEUNINGS, Roland (Springer, 2016)Permeability is the fundamental macroscopic material property needed to quantify the flow in a fibrous medium viewed as a porous medium. Composite processing models require the permeability as input data to predict flow ...
On the multi‑scale description of electrical conducting suspensions involving perfectly dispersed rods PEREZ, Marta; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; BARASINSKI, Anais; CHINESTA, Francisco; AMMAR, Amine; KEUNINGS, Roland (Springer, 2015)Nanocomposites allow for a significant enhancement of functional properties, in particular electrical conduction. In order to optimize materials and parts, predictive models are required to evaluate particle distribution ...
