Research

research overview

  • Dr. Regueiro's research focuses on computational multiscale multiphysics materials modeling for simulating inelastic deformation and failure in heterogeneous porous media, including saturated and partially saturated soils and rock, unbonded particulate materials (e.g., sand, gravel, or metallic powders), bonded particulate materials (e.g., sandstone, asphalt, concrete, ceramics, energetic materials, ...), soft biological tissues (e.g., ocular lens tissue, lung parenchyma), and thin deformable porous materials and membranes, for instance. Scales of interest range from the microstructural and histological to the continuum.
