  • Design of Variable Stiffness Composites

    Development of finite element based optimization methods for design of variable stiffness composites – in progress

  • Crystal Plasticity (ED)

    Metal plasticity inherently involves evolution of texture hence directional stiffness and strength. Crystal plasticity research aims at accurate modeling of anisotropic elastoplastic responses of metallic crystals and its applications, i.e. micro machining, metal forming applications for automotive industry etc.

  • Topology Optimization

    Stiffness of composite materials must be determined at the design stage according to their application. Topology optimization methods allow optimization of directional elastic properties such as stiffness and buckling resistance according to the given application. In this filed topology optimization methods will be developed for composite design applications.
