The work is devoted to the identification of microstructure parameters of a porous body under thermal and mechanical loads. The goal of the identification is to determine the parameters of the microstructure on the basis of measurements of displacements and temperatures at the macro level. A two-scale 3D coupled thermomechanical model of porous aluminum is considered. The representative volume element (RVE) concept modeled with periodical boundary conditions is assumed. Boundary-value problems for RVEs (micro-scale) are solved by means of the finite element method (FEM). An evolutionary algorithm (EA) is used for the identification as the optimization technique.
