Jim Brouzoulis

Forskare at Department of Applied Mechanics, Material and Computational Mechanics

Jim graduated as a PhD 2012 with the thesis "Numerical simulation of crack growth and wear in rails" where his work focused on development of computational models for simulation and crack growth in rails. The work was carried out within the center of excellence CHARMEC.Jim now works as a postdoc at the division of Material and Computational Mechanics. His research deals with development of computationally efficient models for simulation of crash in composites with aim at the automotive industry. Jim is also active within the European project MATISSE.
