Most materials and structures are often subjected to multiple stages of failure associated with deterioration, damage, crack formation/propagation and collapse, involving various time-and spatial-scales. The mini-symposium, ""Multi-stage Failure Simulations"", focuses on phenomena with multi-mechanisms that necessitate novel techniques for numerical simulations to reproduce the step-by-step or sequential failure behavior of materials and structures. This mini-symposium is open to contributions on computational modeling of damage, cracking or fracture behavior at any failure stage and bridging techniques of different failure stages. We also welcome experimental determinations and measurements to demonstrate the validity of computational modeling and to compare experimental results with numerical results.

The topics covered include (but not limited to):

—Advanced finite element methods for failure simulations (X-FEM, Cut-FEM, etc.);
—Advanced schemes for crack propagation analyses;
—Particle methods for failure simulations (SPH, MPM, etc.);
—Discrete modeling for fracture (DEM, RBSM, etc.);
—Damage modeling and analysis;
—Crack phase-field approaches for brittle and ductile failure;
—Peridynamics approach for failure simulations;
—Machine-learning/artificial intelligence techniques for failure simulations;
—Model order reduction for failure simulations;
—Novel simulation schemes for fragmentation;
—Multi-scale approaches for failure modeling and analyses;
—Failure modeling and analysis for heterogeneous media and composite materials;
—Failure modeling and analysis for multi-physics problems;
—Scientific computing and large data in failure simulations;
—Incorporation of stochastic modeling into failure simulations.
