Welcome to the Pablo Zavattieri Research Group web 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 models.
Our current projects are related to the multiscale modeling of heterogenous and hierarchical  materials, micro and nanomechancis of biological materials, bioinspired (biomimetic) materials, architectured materials, micropatterned  interfaces, smart materials, among others.   [more...]
