Virtual Composite Structure Generator (VCSG)
VCSG generates composite structure representative volume elements (RVEs) based on user input.
Phase Field Modeling
The mesoscale, although used generically to mean many things that are "intermediate," means essentially crystal plasticity in the context of multiscale modeling of metals. Crystal plasticity essentially is a continuum theory, but has discrete quantities starting at the grain or crystal scale. Polycrystalline averaging starting from the grain scale could be compared to the polycrystalline internal state variable models that operate at the macroscale. It can reach down to the Dislocation Dynamics results to help determine the material constants for the work hardening rules. Two different crystal plasticity formulations are given here:
- Polycrystal formulations for FCC, BCC, and HCP crystals
- Visco Plasticity Self Consistent (VPSC) model: polycrystalline averaged quantities
Experiments for calibration (homogeneously applied stress and strain states) and validation (heterogeneous stress and strain states) are used to determine the material constants and particular microstructures. The microstructures of interest include the texture (grain/crystal orientation, stress-strain behavior, hardening response, and twinning response if needed). Once the material model is calibrated and validated at the mesoscale, the results for the texture, yield surface, and hardening evolutions can be used in the macroscale internal state variable model and structural scale simulations.
Model Calibration for both the CP 1.0 and VPSC 1.0 models have fitting algorithms in which the material constants can be determined:
- CPfit 1.0
- VPSCfit 1.0
The following single element finite element input decks should be used to verify the material point simulator determinations: one element compression for 500 crystals aluminum polycrystal(ABAQUS-Standard) one element tension for 500 crystals aluminum polycrystal(ABAQUS-Standard) one element simple shear for 500 crystals aluminum polycrystal (ABAQUS-Standard)

Analysis of concrete at the mesoscale is beneficial as the size and distribution of constituents becomes evident. Concrete is a composite material made up of aggregates surrounded by a matrix. Large aggregates are easily visible at the macroscale, but small aggregates, unhydrated cement grains, and voids are first visible at the mesoscale.
