Introductie / missie

We aim to develop and innovate the scientific tools to understand, describe, predict and optimize the mechanical response of industrially relevant materials and products.

Highlighted phrase

Substantially increasing predictive power.

Over de organisatie

The scientific research activities in the Mechanics of Materials group concentrate on the experimental analysis, theoretical understanding and predictive modelling of a range of problems in materials engineering at different length scales, which emerge from the physics and the mechanics of the underlying multi-material microstructure.
The program aims for a substantial increase of the predictive power, thereby optimizing critical, state-of-the-art products and manufacturing processes in direct relation to the complex path-dependent loading history of different materials and their joining interfaces. A systematic and integrated numerical-experimental approach is adopted for this purpose. Within the group’s research scope, the research program entails:

  • Novel theoretical & fundamental insights in the structure-property relations of materials: metals, composites, hybrid materials, ceramics, paper, textiles;
  • Novel computational methods: multi-scale methods; computational damage & fracture mechanics; improved and enriched constitutive models;
  • Novel materials/microstructures: materials in miniaturization; interface mechanics for complex 3D structures; microsystem mechanics; microstructure evolution (sub structuring, patterning, self-organization);
  • Novel experimental methods: full field measurements across the scales (DIC, GDIC, IDIC); various in-situ mechanical tests (integrated with different microscopic visualization methods); small-scale testing for characterizing the fine scale.

VN Doelstellingen voor duurzame ontwikkeling

In 2015 stemden de VN-lidstaten in met 17 wereldwijde duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstellingen (Sustainable Development Goals, SDG's) om armoede te beëindigen, de planeet te beschermen en voor iedereen welvaart te garanderen. Ons werk draagt bij aan de volgende duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstelling(en):

  • SDG 3 – Goede gezondheid en welzijn
  • SDG 7 – Betaalbare en schone energie
  • SDG 9 – Industrie, innovatie en infrastructuur
  • SDG 13 – Klimaatactie
