Research

Our reseach is concerned with all aspects of finite element methods and their application to physical problems. Particularly we work on the development of reconstruction-based a posteriori error estimators and mixed finite element methods and their analysis. Currently we focus our attention on applications in solid mechanics.

Currently funded projects:

  • Project "First-order system least squares finite elements for finite elasto-plasticity" within the 1st phase of the DFG priority programme SPP 1748
  • Project "Stress-based methods for variational inequalities in solid mechanics" within the DFG priority programme SPP 1962
  • Project "Approximation and Reconstruction of Stresses in the Deformed Configuration for Hyperelastic Material Models" (PIs: Bertrand/Starke) within the 2nd phase of the DFG priority programme SPP 1748
