Mechanik, insbes. Kontinuumsmechanik und Materialtheorie

The research of the Continuum Mechanics and Materials Theory Group at the Technical University of Berlin is based in:

  • continuum theory and modeling of the performance and behavior of advanced materials and technical structures
  • fracture and damage mechanics, in particular "fracture electronics"
  • numerical mathematics and computer simulations
  • mechanics and thermodynamics of advanced material (composites, ceramics, glasses, solders, steels, and alloys)
  • experimental determination of micro-mechanics parameters
  • thermodynamics and materials theory
