Introductie / missie

The mission of the group is to understand, predict and optimise the mechanical response of high-tech materials and products as a function of their underlying microstructure, processing and usage, through focused and co-ordinated experimental, theoretical and computational efforts. High-tech materials are key in developing novel products with revolutionary functionality.

Highlighted phrase

Solid mechanics across the length scales for science and society

Over de organisatie

This group’s profile targets the full breadth of mechanics of materials, which is a broad key discipline underlying a variety of applications in energy, health, mobility, high-tech systems, etc.The research of the group embraces material characterization, constitutive modelling, computational mechanics and advanced experimental methods. The group therefore actively collaborates with the other groups in the Mechanics of Materials section. The various applications relate to mechanical metamaterials, additive manufacturing, high-strength steels, hybrids/composites, functional materials, etc.

The Multiscale Lab is the TU/e lab supporting this research activities. Important industrial collaborations are e.g. ASML, DAF, Holst Centre, Philips, TaTa Steel, Océ, RAMLAB, TNO, etc . Research within the group has been supported by industry, the Materials Innovation Institute (M2i), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme (FP7, H2020) and the European Research Council (ERC Advanced Grant).
