Computational Materials Integrity & Lifing

The integrity and lifing area focuses on the development of advanced models that describe:

  • Material behavior
  • Response and damage evolution for use in structural integrity assessments
  • Lifetime and remaining life predictions
  • Structural health management of engineered components, structures and systems

The integration of materials science and applied mechanics is used to develop models describing the mechanical response and performance of a variety of engineering materials used in a wide range of engineering applications. Particular areas of emphasis are:

  • Fracture mechanics
  • Fatigue and fatigue crack growth
  • Computational material modeling
