Quantify Project

Secondments

QUANTIFY will be implemented through a coherent set of staff exchanges between the members of the consortium. QUANTIFY qualifies as a partnership with an international dimension: secondments will take place from European Member/Associated States (MS/AS) to Third Countries (the USA), all between academic organizations. The secondments will allow to develop new collaborative works, to share scientific knowledge based on the development of scientific discussions, to exchange information, analytical and numerical models and the access to experimental resources.

Besides the development of new scientific progresses based on the synergistic cooperation planned in QUANTIFY, the other key point of the project is to develop clear mechanisms to transfer the knowledge obtained during the secondments to the sending organization.

A full detailed description of each secondment is provided here.

Álvaro Vaz-Romero, from UC3M, will be hosted by Prof. Waisman, from the University of Columbia in the City of New York, for 4 months. Several researching lines will be opened in the computational study of shear banding inception under dominated shear conditions, phase field modeling in porous plasticity, etc.; using the open finite element code FEAP. 

Nonlinear Solid Mechanics Group

Nonlinear Solid Mechanics Group

The NSM group, formed by 3 researchers and 4 PhD students, is part of the Department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis at the University Carlos III of Madrid. Research lines include mechanical characterization at high strain rates, formulation of constitutive theories and analytical models for instabilities in ductile materials, nonlinear vibration in elastic structures, etc. The group has 5 on-going competitive grants, 2 National and 3 European, including an ERC Starting Grant.
