All of us conduct research on at least one of the following principle methodologies

- High order Finite Elements
- Mesh Generation
- Finite Cell Method

Our scientific work on these methods is driven by practical challanges stemming from concrete projects. Currently, we work in interdisciplinary groups on the following topics:

- Additive Manufacturing
- Electro-thermo-mechanical modeling of Field Assisted Sintering Technology using high-order finite elements
- Mesh generation for mixed structures
- Finite Cell Method for Contact Mechanics
- Finite Cell Method for transport and reaction process in porous media
- Image-based finite element analysis
- Vibroacoustic analysis in the planning process of timber constructions
- Modelling and numerical algorithms for the simulation of structural properties of additively manufactured metal parts by numerical homogenization

Completed projects

- Non-reflecting Boundary Conditions for the Lattice Boltzmann Method
- High-Order Finite Element Methods for Computational Contact Mechanics I
- Volume-oriented modeling as a basis of co-operative planning in structural engineering
- Model Adaptivity in Sheet Metal Forming
- Computational Steering for patient-specific surgery planning
- Numerical simulation of the impact sound level from lightweigth floors
