    Macroscopic properties of structural materials are strongly dependent on their microstructure. However, the modeling of their evolution is a complex task because of the mechanisms involved such as plasticity, ...

    A mesoscale model is introduced to study the dynamics of material defects lying at interface junctions. The proposed framework couples the dynamics of discrete dislocation and disclination lines. Disclinations...

    We explore new ways of regulating defect behavior in systems of conservation laws. Contrary to usual regularization schemes (such as a vanishing viscosity limit), which attempt to control defects by making the...

    Continuum dislocation dynamics (CDD) aims at representing the evolution of systems of curved and connected dislocation lines in terms of density-like field variables. Here we discuss how the processes of dislo...

    The standard way of modeling plasticity in polycrystals is by using the crystal plasticity model for single crystals in each grain, and imposing suitable traction and slip boundary conditions across grain boun...

    We present a continuum model of ion-induced surface patterning. The model incorporates the atomic processes of sputtering, re-deposition and surface diffusion, and is shown to display the generic features of t...

    A new computationally efficient model of an included phase located at the interface between two other phases is developed by projecting the boundaries of the inclusion onto the boundary between the two other p...

    Cracks are created by massive breakage of molecular or atomic bonds. The latter, in its turn, leads to the highly localized loss of material, which is the reason why even closed cracks are visible by a naked e...
