Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Mechanics Lab aims at developing novel design methodologies and theories in order to simulate various problems based on the demands of automotive, aerospace and defense industries. Main focus is placed on key areas of fiber reinforced composites and additively manufactured metals.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Topology Optimization

Multi-physics modeling

Inverse finite element method (iFEM): Involves development of robust and efficient iFEM methodologies to perform real-time monitoring of full-field and three-dimensional structural deformations and stress states of a structure via a network of in situ strain sensors.

Refined zigzag theory (RZT): Investigates modelling and development of structural design algorithms based on RZT for finite element analysis of thin/thick composite and/or sandwich beams/plates/shells.

Isogeometric analysis (IGA): Involves development of various IGA-based computational frameworks for performing structural analysis of complex and curved geometries such as marine propellers, rims, wave energy devices, aerospace wing models, and wind turbine blades.

Impact / high strain rate problems: Design of impact resistant fiber reinforced composite panels for automotive, aerospace and defense industry.

 

Crashworthiness: Investigates on crash performance of composite and metallic materials for transportation safety research mainly for automotive and aerospace industries.

Crashworthiness analysis for transportation safety problems

Variable stiffness composite design: involves development of a novel method to find optimum fiber angles at each ply of a composite laminate for any given load case.

Crystal plasticity finite element method: primary focus is on modeling of mechanical behavior of additively manufactured metals with intense morphological and crystallographic texture.
