page at Purdue University. Our
research interest is in the broad area of solid mechanics
applied to the multiscale modeling of advanced and
innovative engineering materials. The
main objectives of our research are to address some of the fundamental
issues of solid mechanics and to advance our multiscale understanding
of material behavior by developing and employing accurate physics-based
scale bridging models together with state-of-the-art
computational tools and
high performance computing.
This approach is combined with experiments. In particular, our work has strong emphasis
in the bridging between scales from atomistics to continuum-based

current projects are related to the multiscale modeling of heterogenous
and hierarchical materials, micro and nanomechancis of
materials, bioinspired (biomimetic) materials, architectured
smart materials, among others. [more...]
