Bakgrunn og aktiviteter


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”.


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.
