Many problems in materials science require a multiphysics approach to correctly describe the mechanical behaviour of materials. This often involves the formulation of advanced continuum theories and constitutive models, as well as dedicated numerical procedures. Model identification based on experimental measurements or simulation results at lower scales is also challenging. The aim of this session is to gather scientists working across a variety of material systems to share recent advances in the modelling and simulation of coupled problems in mechanics of materials. Experimental approaches in direct relation with model identification and validation are also welcome.
