Advances in robust, computationally efficient, scalable, and adaptive modeling and simulation capabilities to predict and develop novel materials with optimized performance are necessary to advance the state of R&D in aeronautics and other fields. The last decade has seen tremendous interest in developing concurrent and synergistic high-fidelity multiscale material models to accurately predict the full-scale component response. However, a significant challenge is bridging the temporospatial multi-physical behavior from the nano and micro scales to the meso- and macro scales while accounting for variabilities and manufacturing-induced flaws in the material system. This talk will provide an overview of our current research on multiphysics-based concurrent and synergistic multiscale modeling techniques for modeling advanced composites and multifunctional material systems.
Dr. Aditi Chattopadhyay
Regentsʼ Professor at Arizona State University (ASU) and Ira A. Fulton Chair Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. She is also the Founding Director of the Adaptive Intelligent Materials & Systems (AIMS) Center at ASU (http://aims.asu.edu). She received her B. Tech (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, followed by M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. Her research activities span from fundamental concept development to applied projects with immediate benefits to the industry. She has published over 230 journal papers and over 380 other publications (conference papers, book chapters, and NASA Technical Memorandums) and five patents. Her research has led to several academic, research, and best paper awards. She received the Georgia Institute of Technology Council of Outstanding Young Engineer Award and the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). She is the recipient of the Faculty Achievement Award – Excellence in Research, ASU. Dr. Chattopadhyay is a Fellow of AIAA and ASME.
