Thesis Topic/Title:
Multiscale Modelling of Soil used in Agriculture


Recently the advances in particles based simulation methods as well as meso and nano scale measurements of material properties yield a new paradigm for understanding the multi-scale behaviour of complex materials including soils, soft matters, nanomaterails . The main objective of this project is to use molecular models/coarsed grain models and High Performance Computing techniques to investigate the interactions between soil platelets to develop meso-scale models of soil aggregates. The research will then extend to analyse the distribution of particle sizes and different soil minerals. The goal is to use the bottom-up approach to improve macroscopic models of soil behaviour.
