Main Research Interest
- Nonlinear finite element analysis-Modelling of ductile damage and failure-Material modelling.-Modelling of sheet and bulk metal forming processes.
Modelling and optimization of a rotational slitting process (Bosch Transmission Technology) PressPerfect
Development and integration of constitutive material models for stainless steel, which combine large deformation plasticity with models of phase transformation, aging and surface treatment (Philips CL).
