Research activities

  • Development of thermomechanically coupled material models for metals and polymers.
  • Establishing a Thermoviscoplasticity model for metals, which captures the material behaviour over wide temperature ranges, such as thermal softening effects.
  • Development of a Thermomechanical model for polymers which efficiently transforms basic mechanisms form the chain level to continuum level.
  • Implementation into a large deformation finite element formulation to simulate inhomogeneous boundary value problems.
  • Special treatment within the finite element formulation on the issues related to thermal softening.
  • Establishing modern finite element tools such as automatic differentiation for coupled problems
