In the micromechanics working group, the focus is on the experimental investigation of the damage mechanisms of structural materials and the development of integrative, multi-scale simulation models with the aim of property prediction, in particular for fatigue loading and consideration of local mechanical material properties in the design of components.

  • Research into the fatigue behaviour and fatigue strength of materials with structural defects, such as cast iron, powder metallurgical steels, tool steels
  • Multiscale finite element method, FEM-simulation of fatigue of multiphase materials

 

Current projects:

Lightweight Design of Casted Structural Components in Wind Turbines
