Substantially increasing predictive power.
The scientific research activities in the Mechanics of Materials group concentrate on the experimental analysis, theoretical understanding and predictive modelling of a range of problems in materials engineering at different length scales, which emerge from the physics and the mechanics of the underlying multi-material microstructure.
The program aims for a substantial increase of the predictive power, thereby optimizing critical, state-of-the-art products and manufacturing processes in direct relation to the complex path-dependent loading history of different materials and their joining interfaces. A systematic and integrated numerical-experimental approach is adopted for this purpose. Within the group’s research scope, the research program entails:
The mission of the group is to understand, predict and optimise the mechanical response of high-tech materials and products as a function of...
Our research group studies the mechanical properties of complex, engineered materials such as fibre reinforced composites and 3D printed...
The research of the group focuses on micromechanics of materials: structure-property relations for both mechanical and functional material...
The research area of our group is Multi-scale Mechanics of Solids group aims at understanding, predicting and tailoring...
