Our research aims to predict and improve the durability of heterogeneous materials, such as concrete, rock and soils by combinig analyses and experiments of physical processes on several scales. We are particularly interested in understanding how fracture interacts with mass transport and heat transfer and predicting its influence on durability of construction materials. Our modelling approaches and results are described in our publications.
We are always looking for motivated students with interest in engineering and computational mechanics to join our research group. Please have a look here for current opportunities.
