Nonlinear Solid Mechanics (NSM)

Welcome to the home page of the chair Nonlinear Solid Mechanics.

Our team is dedicated to understanding the complex behavior of material systems and their interfaces under extreme conditions such as those encountered in manufacturing processes, and to leverage this knowledge to develop innovative solutions in a variety of engineering fields. To advance our goals and address the challenges facing the industry today, we incorporate cutting-edge experimental and numerical methods derived from materials science, engineering, and computer science. 

Our research interests are vast and varied, encompassing a diverse range of topics some of which include additive manufacturing, battery can production, multi-scale material and friction modeling, physics-informed machine learning, digital twins, and computational methods for predicting the behaviour of materials and structures. We also focus on process simulation for design, optimization, and monitoring of manufacturing systems.

 Working closely with industry leaders, we are committed to advancing the field of materials science and engineering to drive progress toward enhanced performance, efficiency, and environmental responsibility in engineering systems. We invite you to join us on this fascinating journey as we strive to revolutionize the field and make a positive impact on the world.
