Research overview

The focus of the Continuum Mechanics Group is the development of novel models, methodologies and computational tools for quantifying uncertainties and their effect in the simulation of engineering and physical systems. Our work has been directed towards 4 fronts:

a) the calibration and validation of computational models using experimental data,

b) uncertainty propagation in multiscale systems,

c) model-order and dimension reduction in random media

d) the extraction of governing equations from data in multiscale systems where effective models (or closures) remain elusive
