Knut Andreas Meyer

Post doc at Material and Computational Mechanics

Knut Andreas' research interests include material modeling and calibration, mechanical testing and finite element analysis. He is currently working on the EU Horizon2020 project In2Track2 on rail materials, with special emphasis on modeling the evolving anisotropy due to large plastic deformations and how this affects rail deterioration.
