Our Research

We understand your requirements and let you customize Neve however you wish:
1

Process Modeling

Develop multi-physics models to predict processing-induced fiber wrinkles, voids distribution, residual stresses, and dimensional change of composite parts.

2

ICME

Adopt an Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) approach to integrate materials and manufacturing for performance prediction.

3

Ceramic Matrix Composites

Investigate the failure response and crack propagation in ceramic matrix composites under elevated temperatures.

4

Failure Prediction

Develop high-fidelity micromechanics-based progressive damage failure model for advanced composite structures.
