Professor of Solid and Structural Mechanics
Constitutive modelling of materialsWe have invented a new yield function particularly suited for the modelling of the behaviour of granular and rock-like materials.
We have proposed an innovative constitutive model for granular materials, with particular reference to sand. The model correctly describes the occurrence and development of shear bands.
We have proposed the first constitutive model capable of describing the granular/solid transition occurring during cold forming of ceramic powders, a challenging, but never previously addressed, problem with important industrial implications.
