Description of Your Work/Project in C-SWARM

My principal duties are to develop and implement multi-scale high- performance computational algorithms to predict shock induced reactive material behaviors. In the study of heterogeneous reactive materials subjected to chemo-thermo-mechanical loads, macro-scale analysis represents overall material behavior at the level of interest to engineers, and smaller scale (e.g. meso- and micro-) studies focus on detailed physical processes such as viscoplastic flow, grain sliding, and phase transformation.
