RUB » Departments » Chair of Continuum Mechanics
The group of Daniel Balzani is active in developing methods for the continuum mechanical modeling and simulation of complex materials. Focus is on the development of scale-coupling numerical methods as well as new material models which enable the simulation of materials such as multiphase steels, textile membranes, soft biological tissues, fiber-concrete composites, or hardmetal composites by incorporating uncertainties at different scales. Increasingly, the experimental characterization of nonlinear material properties as well as the unique identification of material parameters become more important.
