Continuum Simulations

Screw Damage2

corrosion damage of an implant (D. Steglich)

On length scales much larger than their atomic or molecular structure, materials can usually be modeled as bodies of continuously distributed matter. This continuum physics approach is useful for a wide number of applications in materials, process and system development. Our “Continuum Simulations” team develops computational multiphysics models for materials research that capture the coupling of different physical phenomena, for example, mechanical deformations, chemical reactions and mass transport mechanisms.
