We are developing object-oriented computational tools for the analysis of materials with complex microstructures. Starting from a digitized micrograph, the program identifies features in the image, assigns material properties to them, generates a finite element mesh, and performs virtual measurements. The goal is to build a computational platform that can predict the macroscopic behavior of a material from knowledge of its microscopic geometry, incorporating a wide variety of physical phenomena and using a modular structure that allows new physics to be added easily.
