The complex interplay between chemistry, microstructure, and behavior of many engineering materials has been investigated predominantly by experimental methods. Parallel to the increase in computer power, advances in computational modeling methods have resulted in a level of sophistication which is comparable to that of experiments. At the continuum level, one class of such models is based on continuum thermodynamics, phase-field methods, and crystal plasticity, facilitating the account of multiple physical mechanisms (multi-physics) and their interaction during microstructure evolution. This paper reviews the status of simulation approaches and software packages in this field and gives an outlook towards promising research directions. © 2022, The Author(s).
