Organization profile

Introduction / mission

Our research group studies the mechanical properties of complex, engineered materials such as fibre reinforced composites and 3D printed materials for lightweight automotive and aerospace applications. In addition, we investigate the mechanical behaviour and fluid flow in fractured porous materials. In all these cases, we develop novel numerical techniques using our own in-house developed Finite Element codes.

Organisational profile

The performance of engineered materials such as composites and 3D printed materials can be improved significantly by studying the evolution of their complex microstructures using advanced numerical techniques.
