Discrete-continuum Coupling Method to Simulate Highly Dynamic Multi-scale Problems

Simulation of Laser-induced Damage in Silica Glass

Mohamed Jebahi, Institute of Mechanics and Engineering, Bordeaux, France Frédéric Dau, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers ParisTech, France Jean-Luc Charles, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers ParisTech, France Ivan Iordanoff, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers ParisTech, France

Complex behavior models (plasticity, crack, visco-elascticity) are facing several theoretical difficulties in determining the behavior law at the continuous (macroscopic) scale. When homogenization fails to give the right behavior law, a solution is to simulate the material at a mesoscale using the discrete element model (DEM) in order to directly simulate a set of discrete properties that are res...
