Division of Material and Computational Mechanics
The activities of the division are focused on the mechanical modeling of structures, components and processes along with the involved materials, thereby providing mechanics-based solutions and virtual solution tools to our engineering challenges. The research issues are canalized via our main research areas:
The applications of our research are found primarily within the automotive and manufacturing industries, and they typically concern the development of novel computational methods and simulation tools based on the finite element method for the analysis of materials and structures. Some specific projects are related to: crack and fatigue modeling in railway rails and wheels, optimized micro-structural design of duplex stainless steel, process modeling of machining, etc.
