Willkommen bei der Professur TMD

Die Professur TMD beschäftigt sich mit der numerischen Dynamik gekoppelter mechanischer Probleme. Dabei steht eine physikalisch konsistente Diskretisierung und eine experimentelle Validierung der Simulationen im Vordergrund. Ziele der Forschungsaktivitäten sind numerische Simulationen die durch speziell entwickelte Algorithmen und validierte Simulationsparameter so realitätsgetreu wie möglich sind. Dazu werden die dynamischen Systeme in Modellen aufgebaut, und die Simulationen darauf abgestimmt. Eine besondere Bedeutung wird dabei der Entwicklung beliebig genauer und physikalisch konsistenter Zeitintegrationsverfahren beigemessen, die die gekoppelten Probleme unter Berücksichtigung jeder herrschenden Zeitskala lösen können.


Gastwissenschaftler Prof. Ignacio Romero (UP Madrid)

Ignacio Romero obtained his Mechanical Engineering degree in the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Ingenieros ICAI (Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid) in 1995.
Funded with a Fulbright scholarship, he enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering MSc program at Stanford University. Later, he moved to the University of California at Berkeley, obtaining his PhD in 2001 in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He returned to Spain in 2001 and spent one year as visiting scholar in the Civil Engineering School of the UPM, before obtaining a Ramon y Cajal research grant. In 2006 he moved as Assistant Professor to the Mechanical Engineering school of the UPM, promoting to Associate and Full Professor in 2007 and 2011, respectively.

His research deals with numerical methods for nonlinear mechanics of solids, fluids, and structures. More specifically, he has developed time integration methods for Hamiltonian and coupled problems, models and numerical methods for nonlinear beams and shells, improved finite elements for solid mechanics, error estimators in nonlinear dynamics and multiscale methods for material modeling.
