Welcome to the Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Mechanics Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University
Our research aims at proposing new methodologies, stochastic models and robust algorithms for Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) in Computational Mechanics, Materials Science and Mechanics of Materials. We specifically tackle the following core questions as an interdisciplinary research:
- How to faithfully model data under both mathematical and physical constraints?
- How to efficiently localize/propagate uncertainties in (non)linear complex models?
- How to calibrate and validate large-scale models, given typical experimental constraints?
- How to provide engineers with high-fidelity models endowed with probabilistic measures of uncertainties?
The proposed theoretical and computational frameworks find applications in a broad range of engineering and scientific fields or projects, such as:
- The multiscale and multiphysics modeling of complex heterogeneous materials and systems.
- The identification of linear or nonlinear material properties solving statistical inverse problems.
- The modeling of (non)linear materials with non separated scales and/or uncertainties.
- The propagation of physics-based models of uncertainties through high-dimensional models.
