Module 2: Materials Science
The development of innovative materials is a driving force of many technical advances. Numerous recently developed structural and functional materials need to be investigated with respect to their material properties and further applications.
The primary aim of this module was to support the generation of a new kind of materials for
- mechanical engineering,
- energy storage,
- lightweight construction, or
- medical engineering.
Mathematical modelling and numerical simulations were applied to address improvements in prediction of materials' behaviour and performance.
