Project Area B

Material Sciences and Mechanics

Also in mechanics and materials science computer simulations play an increasing role. Compared with electron-theoretical calculation methods, they allow the analysis of a considerably higher numbers of particles. The scientists analyse different material aspects, such as fracture, laser ablations, process simulation and determination of resistance to different materials.
