High Performance Methods for Numerical Simulation in Science, Medicine and Engineering

A large variety of physical phenomena involve the interaction of different scales. Such multiscale problems are numerically challenging because, on one hand, computationally efficient solvers for the largest scales are typically not able to resolve the effects on a microscale sufficiently accurate and on the other hand, scaling solution methods for the microscale problems is prohibitive due to limited computational resources. In this project we developed computational methods for the coupling of molecular dynamics and finite elements, targeting the simulation of solides (e.g., in fracture mechanics). The developed methods have been implemented in the parallel multiscale coupling code Maci.
