Abstract

Abstract We report some numerical results on the computation of needle-like microstructures at mesoscopic scale obtained by applying the mesh transformation method, which basically includes a mesh optimization into the finite element approximations, on a nonquasiconvex elastic crystal model. Numerical experiments show that the branched needle-like microstructures can be well resolved near the interfaces between twinned layers of martensite and a single variant of martensite, which are in good qualitative agreement with the physical experiments.
