Persoonlijk profiel

Research profile

Hans van Dommelen is Associate Professor of Micromechanics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research interests are micromechanics of materials: structure-property relations for both mechanical and functional material behavior. He has a special interest in the physics of deformation of crystalline and heterogeneous materials. The research conducted by his group has applications ranging from nuclear fusion reactors to 3d printing and couples the functional properties to the (micro)structure of a material and the physical mechanisms within this microstructure. The tools used to achieve this coupling consist of microstructural modelling of representative parts of the structure, at which level the relevant physical processes can be included, and coupling of length scales via various homogenization techniques, in combination with experimental characterization.

Academic background

Hans van Dommelen studied Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Here, he received his PhD, on the subject of micromechanics of particle-modified semicrystalline polymers in 2003. From August 1999 until February 2000, he worked at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2003 and 2004 he spent some time working at the Center for Applied Biomechanics of the University of Virginia. In 2010-2012, he was a visiting scientist at Cambridge University. In 2003, he was appointed as Assistant Professor at TU/e and since 2013 is Associate Professor in Micromechanics at TU/e.
