Martijn Wismans is a doctoral candidate in the Polymer Technology group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The aim of his project is to bring mechanistic understanding of what governs failure of short-fiber filled thermoplastic systems using state of the art constitutive models in combination with micro-mechanical modelling via relevant representative volume element geometries and morphologies. Key topics of his research are constitutive modelling, material characterization, failure prediction, formation of thermal residual stress, mechanics of rubber toughening, quantification of the microstructure and development of mechanical testing methods. The ultimate goal is to predict failure at a micro- and macroscopic level for short-fiber filled thermoplastic systems.
Martijn Wismans obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in 2015. Afterwards he received his Pre-Master’s degree at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2016. In 2019 he obtained his Master’s degree (with great appreciation) in the Mechanics of Materials group working on plasticity-controlled failure prediction for short-fiber filled thermoplastic systems and validation of an anisotropic elasto-viscoplastic model supervised by Hans van Dommelen and Leon Govaert. In the same year, he enrolled as a doctoral candidate in the Polymer Technology group under the supervision of Leon Govaert, Tom Engels and Lambert van Breemen.
