Abstract

A brief review is given on existing theories for modelling matter on different length scales. A process and a terminology for the modelling is proposed to be used in all the scientific and engineering disciplines. The methods for multiscale modelling developed need to be improved as well as computer performance has to grow before it can be used in product development. However, multiscale modelling can lend new insights to engineer new materials with optimal properties for any application.
