Course content:

Introduction to multi-scale modelling

Molecular dynamics


  • Theoretical background of molecular dynamics
  • Force-probe molecular dynamics simulations
  • Compute mechanical properties at molecular level Phase field modelling (finite element modelling)
  • Theroretical background - Reproduce molecular mechanical properties
  • Validations

Multi-scale modelling


  • Scale bridging
  • Bottom-up approach
  • Applications, e.g., spider silk, nacre
