Research priorities: Mechanics of materials, multiscale materials modelling, deformation and fracture, tribology, materials and energy efficiency
Peter Gumbsch is a German materials scientist working in the field of mechanics of materials on questions concerning materials behavior under load on microscopic and macroscopic scales. The focus is on a better understanding of materials, components and systems at their limits. His aim is safety and reliability in the use of materials and components, and to improve material and energy efficiency in technical systems.
Peter Gumbsch investigates materials, their internal structure and their properties. His research is directed towards the understanding and the mathematical modeling of deformation and fracture processes with the aim of making materials and components safer, more reliable and durable. His concepts of multiscale materials modeling, which link mechanisms at the nano-, micro-and macro-scale, are internationally recognized.
He and his team are pioneering the integration of materials data and materials modeling into the product development process. His current interests are directed towards the investigation of friction and wear processes, where complex interactions of mechanics, physics and chemistry are important.
