research overview

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