Abstract
The main objective of this work is the application of variational concepts to microscopic multiple particle systems (MPS) which are assigned to corresponding points of a macroscopic continuum. Due to this underlying micro-structure it is not sufficient to simulate the macroscopic behavior with pre-assumed (overall) material parameters, or rather constitutive-law-based standard methods. Therefore, the challenge is to determine macroscopic material behaviors, by means of e.g. stresses and numerical tangent-stiffnesses, based on the analysis of the underlying multiple particle system. With the assistance of the applied variational principle and the so-called continuization, which corresponds to the limit of an infinite number of particles in... (More)
The main objective of this work is the application of variational concepts to microscopic multiple particle systems (MPS) which are assigned to corresponding points of a macroscopic continuum.

Therefore, the challenge is to determine macroscopic material behaviors, by means of e.g. stresses and numerical tangent-stiffnesses, based on the analysis of the underlying multiple particle system. With the assistance of the applied variational principle and the so-called continuization, which corresponds to the limit of an infinite number of particles in the system, the analogy of homogenization of discrete and continuous micro-systems is elaborated. Within this work we focus on the so-called computational homogenization scheme, which provides the stage for a coupling between a macroscopic system simulated by the Finite Element Method and different microscopic simulation techniques.
