RUB » Departments » Chair of Continuum Mechanics

Research

Textile membranes, arteries, fiber-reinforced concrete and sheet metals - these complex materials are of big interest at this chair. For the computational simulations of these materials numerical methods are developed, which take the interaction across scales into account. The research projects of the chair break down in the following three research fields:

Computational Biomechanics

Biomechanik Feldbild
Lupe

Computational methods allow the improvement of medical treatments and diagnostic methods and a closer investigation of biological processes. Therefor required models and methods are developed in this research field.

Material Modeling on multiple Scales

Materialmodellierung Feldbild
Lupe

For the optimization and the development of modern materials numerical methods have to be developed, which consider the microstructure of materials across multiple scales in the computational simulation. These methods are of interest in this research field.

Numerical Methods and Uncertainty Quantification

Numerik-ouq Feldbild
Lupe

For numerous problems from the field of mechanics methods for the numerical simulation are developed in this research field, i.e. approximations for tensor-valued derivatives and methods for the quantification of uncertainties.
