Welcome to the Multi-Scale Mechanics group

The Multiscale Mechanics Group (MSM) of the University of Twente studies several topics of condensed matter physics, such as granular materials and powders, micro-fluidic systems and self-healing materials. In general, our research approach consists in developing models of complex materials that capture the physics at every relevant lengthscale.
