Abstract (CMS-0239130) Shaofan Li University of California, Berkeley
The objectives of this CAREER project are: to develop theoretical foundation and numerical algorithms for multiscale meshfree computational methods, and to implement these methods in training and higher education.
The proposed research focuses on (1) developing a micro-mechanics based meshfree variational multiscale computational framework, and (2) use of meshfree spectral or wavelet interpolants for a subgrid method for adaptive numerical simulation.
A new protocol in engineering higher education for computational mechanics will be created by integrating the meshfree multiscale research into the system. This protocol will include: a freshman seminar course, a video series, and the creation of a network of partnership among industries, national labs, and research universities.
This is a new CMS CAREER award.
