"We direct atoms to ensure their perfect interaction in service."

The MCL has a recognized expertise in the experimental analysis and simulation of the behavior of highly complex components:

  • Stress and fracture mechanics analysis for new design concepts
  • Fitness-for-purpose and damage-tolerant-design-concepts
  • Thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF)
  • Multiaxial loading
  • Load bearing capacity and fatigue behaviour of inhomogeneously structured components (e.g. welded structures)
  • Graded materials and material composites
  • Modelling of complex material and damage behaviour
