Multiscale Materials Modelling
His research activities in IMDEA are focused on the simulation of the mechanical behavior of Materials, in particular using micromechanical and multiscale modeling approaches. He is the leader of the research group “Multiscale Materials Modeling”. Within this line, Dr. Segurado has worked in several type of materials and simulation techniques. In metallic materials he has a wide expertise in simulating the mechanical response by means of atomistic models, discrete dislocation dynamic models and crystal plasticity finite element models (CPFE). The researcher has developed his own simulation techniques and codes, highlighting the CPFE package CAPSUL. His work in metals has been focused on aluminum, copper, superalloys and alloys with hexagonal lattice as titanium and Magnesium. The research performed is oriented in obtaining the mechanical behavior, fracture and fatigue response in these materials as function of the microstructure. In composites he has developed and implemented several micromechanical finite element models for particle and long fiber reinforced composites. These studies are focused on determining the effect of microstructure, phase and interface properties on the non-linear behavior and fracture of these materials.
