Project: Mechanical aspects of bio based composites
Supervisor: Lars Berglund
Project planned to end: Dec 2022
My work consists of understanding the strength-toughness balance of novel cellulose nanocomposites by exploring microstructures, weak interfaces, anisotropy, and lamella thickness. My competences and research interests are in finite element and micromechanical modelling, strength of materials, fracture mechanics and mechanical testing of materials.
Research theme: 1–wood components, 4–material concepts
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
