Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Background:

The spring of 2016, I finished my masters at NTNU in Civil Engineering. My thesis work was performed for SimLab and was titled “A Cellular Automaton Model for Calculation of Ductile Fracture”.

Description:

The main objective of my PhD project is to develop micromechanically based material models for structural and high-strength steels with emphasis on strain localization and ductile fracture.

Important topics will be work-hardening in two-phase materials, void nucleation, growth and coalescence in single-phase and two-phase materials, homogenization techniques, and localization analysis.
