With the advancement of manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing, designing microstructured materials have become available. However, defects can still exist at the microscale in the form of microcracks and voids. With the current computational power, it is still challenging to fully model these materials at the microscale. Hence, multiscale methodologies appear to be the promising approach to model such structures. In this chapter three different multiscale methodologies used in peridynamic framework including coarsening, model order reduction using static condensation, and homogenization are covered and briefly explained. By using such strategies, significant benefits can be obtained especially in terms of computational time.
