Abstract: It has long been appreciated in materials science that the bulk properties of real material systems are controlled by the details of their microstructure, that is, the often complex way in which the component parts are arranged. Effective properties of real materials can be difficult to measure, and because of the complexity of real microstructures, can also be difficult to predict, even with complete knowledge of the properties of the component materials. A new version of the Object-Oriented Finite-element (OOF) software addresses the computation of effective properties with a more flexible architecture, providing for the computation of effective properties from components with a wide range of physical properties, along with the image-based microstructural tools of the previous version. The OOF software and its applications will be described, and the development of the second version will be highlighted.
