Advanced Finite Element Concepts
Our group has a strong track record in developing novel finite element concepts such as the Embedded Finite Element Method to model fracture. We have developed mixed finite element methods ensuring the inf-sup condition for multi-physics problems such as coupled Cahn-Hilliard-type flow in elastic media, extended phase-field models for fracture, poroelasticity, topology optimization, or gradient-extended plasticity models and have proposed isogeometric based subdivision methods. Our group was the first to propose peridynamics for modeling biological materials. Early works include an all-electron Kohn-Sham density functional theory using hierarchical finite element spaces and Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian finite element methods.
