Material Modelling

The design of next generation of highly reliable materials is a challenge that will have to be handled in the framework of new developments in computational modelling.

Material modelling

We have a wealth of expertise in developing pioneering modelling, simulation and experimental approaches to conduct novel modelling and characterization and development of new materials for a variety of different applications, ranging from tissue engineering to aerospace engineering. Our strength is material computational modelling is complemented by our link and access to state-of-the-art material experimental testing facilities at Brunel University London where there is a strong track record in development of first principles-based modelling solutions with hierarchical coupling across length and time scales relevant to understanding of behaviour of structures and materials under extreme conditions. This includes the evolution of microstructural phases, defect structures and fracture under quasi-static and dynamic conditions including shockwaves.

Further, an in-house developed computational technology based on Lagrangian continuum scale (field theory) methods, specifically the Finite Element Method where DYNA3D code is the main development platform and Smooth Patrice Hydrodynamics (SPH) coupled with DYNA3D. These developments include new element formulations, contact algorithms for FE and SPH, regularisation techniques, constitutive models for metals and composites.
