Welcome to the COMO Laboratory!
COmputational Mechancis and Optimization Laboratory
We are working to advance the fields of topology optimization and computational fracture mechanics by developing new theories and numerical implementations to simulate and optimize complex engineering systems.
We are particularly interested in:
- Stress-constrained topology optimization
- Multi-physics topology optimization
- Microstructure design
- Multi-scale topology optimization
- Additive manufacturing
- Fracture of rate-dependent materials
- Mechanics of self-healing materials
