The mission of this research group is to develop new models and computational tools for the micromechanics of materials, and to employ these to develop relationships between the internal structure of a material and its mechanical properties. We study material properties at a range of length scales, placing special emphasis on scale transitions. We cover a variety of engineering materials, considering and exploiting the similarities and differences in their behaviour.
