The purpose of this mini-symposium is to recognize recent achievements in computational method and mechanics theory for predicting behaviors of advanced new materials in various length scales. This mini-symposium is mainly open to contributions on new computational technology and mechanics theory that can enhance the current capability of computational predictions. Under this theme, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-    New computational method and/or mechanics theory for predicting material deterioration process at single or across multiple scales

-    New computational method and/or mechanics theory for predicting material behaviors under multiphysics loading conditions through coupled fields analysis

-    New computational mechanics theory that can provide new paradigm for bridging temporal and/or physical length scales

-    Quantification of computational errors and uncertainty propagations in computational multiscale and/or multiphysics analysis

-    New verification and validation framework for coupled scales and/or fields analysis with experiments

-    Simulation-based inverse characterization of material damage criteria or parameters in various length scales

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this research field, contributions from theoretical and applied mechanics, computational physics, applied mathematics, materials science, and nanotechnology are welcome.
