Lars Beex

Lars Beex is a Research Scientist at the University of Luxembourg who has received the Biezeno Solid Mechanics Award 2012 for his PhD thesis. He has co-authored 16 publications related to the computational modelling of solids, of which 11 as first author. Dr Beex focuses on materials with some form of small-scale discreteness. Examples are printed lattices, foams, fabrics and paper materials. Mechanical phenomena of particular interest are geometrical nonlinearities, plasticity, damage, contact and stochastic aspects. He aims to incorporate these phenomena in multiscale approaches, such as the quasicontinuum method, and model-order-reduction frameworks in order to increase computational efficiency.
