Lattice Stability of Hybrid Atomistic to Continuum Coupling Methods for Fracture Modeling Luskin, Mitchell


Hybrid atomistic to continuum coupling methods have been developed to obtain the accuracy of atomistic modeling in the neighborhood of crack tips, while using continuum modeling to include long range elastic effects. We will present a survey of recent work to analyze the lattice stability error introduced by atomistic to continuum coupling methods. These error estimates are then utilized to develop accurate blended coupling methods with controllable error.

Joint work with Christoph Ortner, Mathew Dobson, Xingjie Helen Li, Derek Olson, and Brian Van Koten.
