Peridynamics modeling of crack propagation in double-cantilever-beam specimen

Welcome to the website of the Computational Mechanics Group in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As described in the summary of our current and recent research interests, our research group develops and implements a variety of novel numerical tools for a range of multiscale and multiphysics problems such as those encountered in:

  • computational analysis and design of novel biomimetic materials, including self-healing and microvascular materials
  • simulation of manufacturing processes
  • fundamental problems in quasi-static and dynamic fracture mechanics
  • dynamic response of materials
  • failure of thin films and MEMS
  • theoretical and computational analysis of wave tailoring granular media
  • constitutive and failure response of advanced composites, energetic materials and structural ceramics
  • aeroelasticity and aeroacoustics
  • multiscale analysis and design of heterogeneous materials

I invite you to take a tour of this web site. If you have any question and/or comment, don’t hesitate to contact me at geubelle@illinois.edu.
