Mohsen Mirkhalaf

Senior Lecturer at Institution of physics at Gothenburg University

Due to rising consciousnesses about environmental issues and the important need of sustainability, recent
decade has seen considerable developments of bio-composite materials. Mohsen works on modelling the mechanical behavior of bio-composite materials considering the micro-structural characteristics including mechanical and morphological properties. To be able to accurately model the mechanical behavior of bio-composites, it is needed to study the mechanical behavior of bio-polymeric matrix and also the natural reinforcement. Thus, Mohsen also works on experimental characterization of the micro-structural constituents of the bio-composite.
