Physical systems modeling and simulation

The Efficiency by Simulation Catedra Chair Platform area is concerned with the development of modeling and optimization techniques and constitutive material models for its application on the development processes of the automotive industry. The major areas of interest of this research group are the modeling of new lightweight materials, the simulation of joining techniques, and the enhancement of numerical methods and processes. The resulting models will be used for predicting and optimizing the mechanical behavior of complex hybrid vehicle structures as well as for optimizing the manufacturing process.
