research overview

  • My current research focuses on model-based simulation of coupled problems in mechanics using finite element and particle element methods. This is applied to the following multiphysics problems: fluid-structure interaction (acoustoelasticity, aeroelasticity and hydroelasticity) thermomechanical interaction (heat conduction, transfer and mass transport), and control-structure interaction in structural dynamics. This research is conducted in collaboration with European researchers, notably at the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), which is hosted by the Universidad Politecnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain.
