Thomas Bru

Doktorand at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Material and Computational Mechanics

Thomas Bru is an industrial PhD at Swerea SICOMP. His research project is on “crash modelling of composite materials towards future lightweight road vehicles”. In this project, his work deals with experimental methods for the characterisation of the crushing mechanisms in composites and the extraction of material input for numerical models.
