Group of Mechanics of Materials

Group Hoefnagels

The research of our group focuses on experimental-numerical micro-mechanical and microscopic analysis of deformation and failure behavior of a broad class of (innovative) materials and material systems.

Making materials durable by unraveling deformation and failure at the microscale

Our research group focuses on experimental-numerical micromechanics to unravel the micromechanical behavior of materials and material systems in order to achieve superieur mechanical performance and durability at the scale of application. This is done in two ways:
