Research

Research at LTM focuses on important core skills for mechanical engineering but also on adjacent areas of interest at the Faculty of Engineering and also the entire university. Main research topics include modern modeling and simulation tech­niques with a focus on nonlinear finite element methods and other alternative numerical methods, failure and defect mechanics, multi­scale modeling and simulation of heterogeneous materials, as well as material modeling, e.g. of metals and polymer materials, based on concepts of nonlinear continuum mechanics.
