||This symposium will honor the remarkable contributions of Dr. Michael I. Baskes to the field of computational materials science. Along his career Dr. Baskes has pioneered the theoretical and numerical development of models of materials behavior, with emphasis on the role played by atomistic defects on the anisotropic behavior of engineering materials. His many contributions have been critical to establish a strong connection between models and experiments, and to bridge different scales in the pursuit of robust multiscale models with experimental integration.
This symposium intends to bring together materials scientists and engineers to address current theoretical, computational and experimental issues related to microstructure-property relationships in engineering materials, including the deformation of single, polycrystalline materials, and nanocrystalline materials, development of high-fidelity atomistic models for alloys and their application in studying defect physics over experimentally relevant length and timescales, and, most importantly, unresolved challenges and problems in computational materials science in general. Special attention will be paid to research that closely couple experiments with computational modeling across length and time scales.
