Development of mechanical models and simulation techniques for the following applications :

  • fracture of brittle materials (phase-field approaches)
  • limit analysis/yield design for civil engineering structures
  • multi-scale approaches for heterogeneous materials and structures (fiber materials, composite plates)
  • numerical methods for non-linear mechanics (convex optimization)
  • viscoplastic fluid flows

Numerical tools

These numerical tours aim at introducing a wide variety of topics in computational continuum and structural mechanics using the finite element software FEniCS. The covered topics will help the reader in getting started with FEniCS using solid mechanics examples going from elasticity, thermoelasticity, dynamics, buckling, non-linear consitutive laws as well as applications to beam and plate structures.
