Localization Analysis of Mixed Continuum-atomistic Models

By R. Sunyk and P. Steinmann


Continuum-atomistic models combine atomistic features like pair potentials and lattice-structures with classical field approaches from continuum mechanics. Thus they may be considered as a mixed scale method, whereby the atomistic scale is typically in the order of nm, whereas the continuum scale is in the order of mm. In this contribution we investigate the influence of the atomistic features on the continuum response, especially with respect to the failure characteristics in terms of the localization tensor
