This book presents current spatial and temporal multiscaling approaches of materials modeling. Recent results demonstrate the deduction of macroscopic properties at the device and component level by simulating structures and materials sequentially on atomic, micro- and mesostructural scales. The book covers precipitation strengthening and fracture processes in metallic alloys, materials that exhibit ferroelectric and magnetoelectric properties as well as biological, metal-ceramic and polymer composites. The progress which has been achieved documents the current state of art in multiscale materials modelling (MMM) on the route to full multi-scaling.

"In most chapters, clear target properties which are important in recent industrial applications are shown and the modeling results are discussed with real experimental data. The enthusiasm of the computer scientists impressed me and gave recognition to the significance of multiscale modeling. [...] The combination of modeling methods with experimental approaches to atomic interaction, interface structure and electromagnetic characterization is expected to be actively pursued in the future."Yoshiaki Fukushima in: Journal of Applied Crystallography 51 (2018) http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/paper?S1600576718001899
