A concurrent multiscale method has been developed based on the combination of the advanced meshfree method and molecular dynamics (MD). An advanced transition algorithm using regular transition particles was employed to ensure the compatibility of both displacements and their gradients. An effective local quasi-continuum approach is also applied to obtain the equivalent continuum strain energy density based on the atomistic potentials and Cauchy-Born rule. The influences of the size of transition region and the number of transition particles are investigated thoroughly. It has been demonstrated that the present multiscale simulation technique is very accurate and stable, and it has very good potential to develop a practical simulation tool for the multiscale systems in computational mechanics.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
