Mathematical theory of dislocations : geometry, analysis, and modelling

FCT Starting Grant (IF/00734/2013)
PI: Nicolas Van Goethem

The main purpose of this research project is dislocation modeling in solid bodies (single crystals). This encompasses analytical and geometrical properties of dislocation-singularities, functional analysis for the incompatibility operator, incompatibility-based models of plasticity and time-evolution of dislocation sets. The mathematical tools used and developed for this purposes are PDEs, variational methods, differential geometry and topological sensitivity analysis. Nonlinear elasticity, Continuum mechanics and thermodynamics are also required and developed for such models. In general, theoretical and numerical results are sought.
