Numerical modelling and design of materials for lightweight structures
This research is relevant to the automotive and aerospace sectors, as well as many manufacturing based sectors (such as white goods). Numerical modelling of materials can save costs as computer-aided-engineering techniques can conduct very fast virtual prototyping, decreasing design and physical testing times.
The group has projects that range from the fundamental (constitutive material modelling) through applied research (understanding tool wear), to more development work (lightweight body design).
Mission and objectives:
- Excellence in modelling difficult material behaviour.
- Solving challenging industrial problems.
- Developing sustainable material and design solutions to structural design problems.
