Knut Andreas Meyer

Researcher at Material and Computational Mechanics

Knut Andreas is working towards his PhD with the CHARMEC Project MU34: “Influence of anisotropy on deterioration of rail materials”. The project consists of both computational material modelling and multi-axial material testing. The material modelling builds on previous CHARMEC projects. The goal is to predict the development of anisotropy due to large plastic deformations and its effect on the deterioration of different rail materials.
