The Schrödinger Equation
TypeChapitres d'ouvrages scientifiques
The finest scale in the matter description consists of the one of quantum mechanics. In this chapter we revisit some valuable concepts of quantum mechanics, and more particularly the Schrödinger equation governing the time evolution of the so-called wavefunction, from which expectations can be easily derived. Another important output is the interatomic potentials responsible of the chemical bonds determining the structure and properties of materials. Even if the quantum framework is able to define the big picture, an important difficulty remains: the Schrödinger equation is defined in a highly multidimensional space and its solution is in most cases unattainable.

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 ...
