Current research is focused on modeling and simulation of microstructure evolution in metallic materials and how this translates into macroscale material behavior. The main research topics include plasticity across length-scales as well as microstructure changes due to, e.g., recrystallization, grain growth and phase transformations. Both modeling and experimental investigations of the physical mechanisms as well as implementation of efficient numerical simulation algorithms are fields of interest.
- Recrystallization and grain growth in metallic materials
- Martensitic phase transformation and TRIP-effects
- Use of HPC resources in computational materials science
- Texture evolution and grain boundary mechanics
Ongoing research projects
- Multiscale modeling of metal thin film mechanics
- Growth of tin whiskers from Sn-Cu substrates
- Dislocation/grain boundary interactions and related gradient effects
- Martensitic phase transformation, in relation to metal forming and fracture
