Material Mechanics

Description / Outline

The precise modeling of the material behavior is of crucial importance for the success of numerical simulations of the stress behavior of components or of processes. A research focus of the LTM is the development of constitutive models for the description of the elastic, plastic or viscoelastic behavior of different engineering materials. In addition to damage or fracture, physically coupled problems are also considered, for example the modeling of electro- or magnetoactive polymers.
