Computational and experimental micromechanics

Impact: Research Topic/Theme (at group level)

Description of impact

The ultimate performance of materials and high-tech micro-systems originates from the mechanics at small length scales, where microstructures play a dominant role. To achieve a comprehensive understanding of these phenomena, this subprogramme focuses on the development of advanced physical models, computational tools and state-of-the-art experimental techniques to study the mechanics of microstructures at the micro-scale.
