Main Research Interest / Name of Research Project

  • Numerical simulation of forming processes e.g. deepdrawing, incremental sheet forming, extrusion, rolling, cutting.
  • Numerical modelling of biomaterials.
  • Stability of plastic deformation and stability of material models in FEM analysis (including mesh dependency, localization and convergence).
  • Optimization and robustness in forming processes.
  • Object Oriented Programming (finite element programs, mesh generation programs). The C++ framework FeaTure for Finite Element programming and a collection of C++ tensor classes are freely available.
