Automated Computational Mechanics Laboratory
The laborious and time-consuming process of modeling problems with complex and/or evolving morphologies is one of the major challenges in the field of computational mechanics, which can either prohibit the application of conventional techniques such as the standard finite element method (FEM) or result in oversimplified models that neglect important geometrical details. In ACML, our research focuses on the development of novel computational methods that rely on advanced computational geometry algorithms for the automated modeling and simulation of the multiscale/multiphysics behavior of such problems. In our group, we investigate a wide array of engineering problems across different length scales, ranging from simulating the localized corrosion in metallic materials to the damage evolution in human intervertebral disc, and from the real-time digital manufacturing of automotive flexible components to simulating the failure response of composites and heterogeneous materials.
