Abstract:The development of the coupling approaches for the multi scale FE2 model is the subject of the present work. Two different coupling schemes are considered during the overall investigation. The first, is a One-Way coupling where numerical simulations are run sequentially so results from one scale are used as an input for another scale. The second is a Fully-Coupled approach, where results are exchanged between investigated scales in each time step. Development of the communication protocols for the later approach is a subject of present work.
