Don’t trust your simulation...

Don’t trust your simulation; a pretty controversial start to this progress report. The fundamentals of mature microstructure methods with particular reference to lattice defect ensemble simulations above the atomic scale are highlighted here as well as data handling or the necessity to identify key mechanisms. A tremendous challenge still lies in developing smarter and more general methods to bridge the scales in multi-scale simulation initiatives (D. Raabe, May 5; Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 639-650).
