Damage, fracture and reliability

Impact: Research Topic/Theme (at group level)

Description of impact

The lifetime and reliability of engineering components and devices at all length scales are governed by damage and fracture of their constituting materials and interfaces. This subprogramme develops the in-depth understanding of failure phenomena and provides powerful models and computational solution strategies, along with dedicated integrated numerical-experimental identification methods.
