Minisymposium Title: Modeling Mechanical Response in Disordered and Structurally Complex Materials Systems

Minisymposium Description: We propose a workshop exploring approaches to the quantification of microstructure with an eye to modeling mechanical response in materials that exhibit disorder and structural complexity. Examples of such systems include glasses, granular media, colloids, and biological systems. Many interesting interconnections can be drawn between these including incompatible embedded metrics that lead to residual stresses, poorly characterized structures that accommodate plasticity and flow, and a need to account for how forces are generated, accommodated and distributed. This workshop will bring together materials scientists, physicists, mathematicians and engineers to examine these problems from multiple overlapping perspectives.
