Abstract: Twinned Martensite is a crystallographic structure observed in some alloys at the microscopic level which occurs at a minimum energy state. These microstructures are attributed to the macroscopic behavior of the alloys. In this talk, I will present optimization approaches and numerical results for minimizing an energy functional whose solution simulates the behavior of these microstructures.
