Lars Beex is a Research Associate at eh University of Luxembourg. He tries to obtain an understanding of mechanics of solid materials and translate this knowledge into predictive computational models, which can directly or in the long run be used by industry.
Lars Beex mostly focus on fibrous materials, e.g. paper(board) and (electronic) textile. His research aims to incorporate intrinsic small-scale mechanics of fibrous materials in the computational models in order to increase their accuracy. To increase the efficiency of the small-scale models, he develops and applies multiscale methodologies such as the quasi continuum method.
