Material modeling

Material modeling

In our group, we develop mathematical models, across multiple length scales, to understand fundamental material behaviour. Specifically, we are interested in developing theoretical and computational tools that predict material response to various loading conditions in phase transformation materials. These theoretical tools will guide in the discovery of materials with enhanced capabilities, and provie a systematic methodology to engineer materials from a bottom-up approach. Methods of interest to our group include, phase-field models, cohesive-zone models, molecular dynamics, and phase-field crystal models.
