    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


    Outline of multiscale modelling and the process-structure-properties-performance (PSPP) concept is presented. Brief description of multiscale modelling methods is provided following their range of application in spatial and temporal ranges. The PSPP concept as a state-of-the-art modelling assisted material design procedure is described. Case examples illustrating the material features incorporated to a PSPP analysis are given, emphasizing the modelling of realistic material structures in the nano to microstructure range and on the other hand the mechanisms responsible for material performance in a component environment.
