Symposium 6: Multiscale modeling of radiation effects in materials

Roger E. Stoller, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA


Irradiation alters the microstructure of materials and leads to modification of the materials properties. Multiscale modeling is demonstrating high potential for quantitative investigation of the defect processes, microstructure evolution and property changes induced by irradiation. This symposium is the foremost international forum addressing the development and application of multiscale modeling methods to the understanding the radiation effects and aging of metals, ceramics and semiconductors, for both materials processing and advanced nuclear energy systems applications. Theoretical, experimental, and computational contributions are sought in related areas, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Defect generation and long term evolution under irradiation.
  • Microstructure evolution and phase stability under irradiation.
  • Irradiation-induced creep and mechanical behavior of irradiated materials.
  • Irradiation effects in nanostructured materials.
  • Multiscale modeling techniques in all of the above areas.

Modeling techniques based on ab initio, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, chemical rate theory and related methods, phase field approach, and defect dynamics simulations are especially encouraged.
