Prof. Lew’s research group works on the design and mathematical analysis of numerical methods to simulate solids and fluids, and in the modeling of selected processes is solids. Current areas of focus are: (a) Methods and models to simulate crack propagation, with a focus on hydraulic fracturing, (b) Creation of meshing tools for problems with evolving domains, advancing in particular the applicability of the method of Universal Meshes that we introduced, and (c) Creation of methods, models, and experiments to analyze and tailor the microstructure of 3D printed metallic parts.
