Description

Research opportunities exist for modeling highly transient, coupled, multiphysical fields in solids using analytical, finite element, finite difference, peridynamic, and other computational methods. Emphasis is placed on model validation with experiments, and verification with analytical solutions to transient coupled-field boundary value problems involving wave propagation, electromagnetic fields in finitely deformed matter, fluid-structure interaction associated with shock, impact, dynamic fracture, and fragmentation phenomena. Additional research opportunities exist in the area of multiscale modeling of material microstructures and their optimization using genetic programming and computational geometric methods for use in conjunction with large-scale finite element and other computational solvers.
