Numerous techniques are available for obtaining high resolution 3D images of material microstructures, e.g. computer tomography, scanning electron microscopy, magnetic resonance imaging. These techniques provide a very accurate representation of heterogeneous materials with complex microstructure but lead to a large amount of data. Incorporating microstructure information in numerical models and developing efficient computational methods represent challenges in multi-scale analysis of heterogeneous materials. The aim of this mini-symposium is to present novel developments and discuss recent advances on image based modeling in computational mechanics of materials, including following aspects:
