Research @ CSM

 

Non-local Damage and Transport in Porous Media

IMG_Poro1.png

The CSM research is focused on advancing the mechanics theory and numerical algorithms to better predict the time-dependent, nonlinear, multiscale, and fracture behavior of manmade and natural materials; including concrete, steel, polymers, ice, rock, and biomaterials. This is achieved through the development of constitutive material modeling and numerical algorithms/methods suited to represent different types of materials and phenomena.


Current research thrusts:

  • Computationally efficient non-local modeling of damage in porous media

  • Continuum to discrete fracture transition for ductile and brittle materials

  • Coupled solution algorithms for computationally efficient multiphysics modeling

  • Stabilized numerical algorithms for ill-conditioned multiphysics problems

  • Image-based characterization of fracture mechanisms in brittle and porous materials
