Simulation and Measuring of Materials Behavior


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

This module is based on knowledge obtained in 1st Semester

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Attain knowledge about describing and modelling the microstructure of materials.
  • Be able to apply modelling techniques for simulation of material properties


  • Be able to use different experimental techniques, such as Raman spectroscopy, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), thermo-mechanical analysis (TMA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
  • Be able to simulate selected test techniques or processes utilizing multiphysics software packages.


  • Be able to combine measuring techniques for determining material behaviour, such that techniques for determining mechanical properties are used along with methods for describing microstructure and molecular and atomic structure.
