The accurate study of complex structural systems may require advanced strategies, yet not forgetting the importance of empirical and analytical formulations. Advanced modelling strategies need to include an accurate description of the mechanical response of materials at different scales of analysis. In this regard, the application and implementation of promising strategies is a research streamline, that goes from macro-scale strategies to material constitutive models.
