Warner, Derek

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Research Interests: Derek Warner's (Assistant Professor) research effort is aimed at understanding the connection between microscopic physical phenomena and the macroscopic deformation and failure of engineering materials by coupling cutting-edge computing technologies with state-of-the-art simulation techniques. Within this theme, current research efforts involve: (1) the use of atomistic and discrete dislocation modeling to better understand the mechanisms that control the failure of structural materials, (2) the use of micromechanical continuum finite element modeling to uncover the connections between nano-scale mechanical processes and macroscopic behavior, and (3) the advancement of the methods that make such studies possible. For a more detailed description of our current projects please refer to our group's research webpage.
