dc.description.abstractThis project is focus on computational solid mechanics simulation, it is the continuation and improvement of the program in development `Alamo` made by my current advisor Dr. Brandom Runnels, assistant professor of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs specialized in mechanical and aerospace engineering. `Alamo` is a numerical simulation program in continuum mechanical encompassing a range of methods from atomistic (molecular dynamics) to mesoscale (phase field) to continuum (finite element analysis). My project is about generating the numerical code into the program to simulate in 2D and 3D the comportment of the grain structure when it is brought under uniaxial traction or displacement. We study both metals and polymers, and our projects have a number of exciting applications ranging from solid rocket motors to civil infrastructure. Solid mechanics and programming (Linux server and C++).
