RESEARCH

Research Focus

  • Fatigue damage behaviour of polymer composites 
  • Numerical analyses of load sequence effects and mean stress influences
  • Influence of residual stresses and inhomogeneous stress states on damage evolution
  • Development of damage growth functions for reversed cyclic loadings
  • Experimental validation numerical simulations

TEACHING

Supervision of student works

Project (B.Sc.) & bachelor theses, seminar (M.Sc.) and master theses are welcome by arrangement.
