Computational methods for multi-scale structural optimisation

Structural optimisation is a powerful computational methodology for finding high-performing designs for structural components or material architectures. For example, what periodic scaffold would provide the highest possible stiffness for its weight?Solving such a problem computationally requires an understanding of the relevant equations required to model the physical properties of interest, as well as efficient implementation of a range of numerical methods including finite elements, finite differences and optimisation.With recent developments in 3D printing technologies it is now possible to manufacture …

Materials discovery and design from quantum mechanics-based computational approaches

Understanding novel physics in nanoscale materials is critical for the development of modern electronics technology.However, such delicate materials are difficult to manipulate and characterize experimentally because of their tiny size. This raises the conundrum of how to proceed forward quickly with exploration and subsequently design of properties.In principle, materials properties are determined by the electronic structure. Quantum mechanics based computational approaches are able to address fundamental electronic, optical and magnetic properties in such materials.This provides a powerful complement to the …
