The group works in the formulation, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods for complex problems in Computational Mechanics of Solids, Fluids, and Structures. We have developed a state-of-the-art simulation framework for Computational Mechanics with capabilities for linear/nonlinear, static/transient problems in our areas of interest, including complex material models. Specific topics on which we are currently working are:
Formulation and numerical solution of non-smooth elasto-visco-plasticity modelsread more..
A general overview on multiple necking and fragmentation problems in ductile solids subjected to high strain ratesread more..
