Magnus Ekh

Professor at the division of Material and Computational Mechanics, Department of Industrial and Materials Science

Main research topic is modelling of mechanical behaviour of materials on different scales. Most of the research is devoted to modelling of the cyclic behaviour of metals. A focus area of the research is the development of macroscopic models that should capture phenomena such as cyclic ratcheting behaviour, temperature dependence, creep deformations and, for large strains, the evolution of anisotropy. Another focus area of the research is the development of crystal plasticity models together with multi-scale modelling for polycrystals.
