    Abstract: The focus of the present minisymposium is placed on the development and application of modern numerical methods for the efficient simulation of complex structures in a combination with experimental investigations. This research field plays a crucial role in modern mechanical engineering and becomes more and more important in view of digitalization processes entering all fields of manufacturing, logistics and product lifetime. Novel strategies such as big data analysis, machine learning and multiscale simulations are opening new horizons: On the one hand, the structural response enables us to go deeply into the material microstructure and to optimize it according to the specific external requirements. On the other hand, data-driven computation along with the sophisticated structural elements are pushing the limits of the contemporary finite element analysis towards a more user-friendly software with high flexibility regarding the range of application. The numerical simulations are then perfectly complemented by the experimental investigations yielding data that are necessary for the validation and calibration of models developed.
