The research has applications ranging from nuclear fusion reactors to 3d printing and couples the functional properties to the (micro)structure of a material and the physical mechanisms within this microstructure. The tools used to achieve this coupling consist of microstructural modelling of representative parts of the structure, at which level the relevant physical processes can be included, and coupling of length scales via various homogenization techniques, in combination with experimental characterization.
