Computational Mechanics Modeling with a focus on multi-scale structure-materials analysis and simulations, multi-physics modeling and simulation of multi-functional materials, materials characterization, process modeling, emerging fields like Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME).Specific areas of activity include:

  • Multiple spatial and temporal scale modeling and simulations of mechanical-electro-magnetic phenomena, applied to antenna and sensor applications
  • Multiple spatial and temporal scale image-based modeling of polycrystalline materials
  • Multiple spatial and temporal scale image-based modeling of composite materials
  • Multi-scale material characterization and virtual image simulation
  • Fatigue and life prediction of metals and composites with experimental integration
  • Brittle and ductile failure of heterogeneous materials
  • Instabilities in thermal barrier coatings
  • Molecular dynamics simulations of polymeric and metallic materials
  • Probabilistic methods in multi-scale modeling
  • Metal forming and materials processing simulation and design
  • Novel finite element model development with adaptivity
  • Biomaterials and design of bio-implant and prosthetics
