Computational solid mechanics group

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:

  • Nonlinear continuum and structural mechanics
  • Material modelling at the continuum level (including inelasticity, high-velocity response, damage, thermomechanical models, ...)
  • Design, analysis, and implementation of advanced numerical methods for the simulation of solids and structures.
  • Numerical methods for coupled problems
  • Multiscale material modeling
