  • Mechanics (18.54%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Finite element method, Applied mathematics, Mechanics, Composite material and Element. Mechanical engineering is closely connected to Homogenization in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Finite element method. Peter Wriggers interconnects Solid mechanics, Minification, Nonlinear system, Discretization and Robustness in the investigation of issues within Applied mathematics.

The Discretization study combines topics in areas such as Numerical integration and Numerical analysis. His Mechanics research integrates issues from Fracture mechanics, Fracture and Plasticity. He combines subjects such as Implant and Magnesium with his study of Composite material.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phase-field modeling of brittle fracture using an efficient virtual element scheme (60 citations)
  • A modified Gurson-type plasticity model at finite strains: formulation, numerical analysis and phase-field coupling (48 citations)
  • Variational phase-field formulation of non-linear ductile fracture (37 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Composite material
  • Finite element method
  • Mathematical analysis

Peter Wriggers spends much of his time researching Finite element method, Applied mathematics, Mechanics, Nonlinear system and Fracture mechanics. His Finite element method research incorporates themes from Discretization, Mathematical analysis, Robustness and Anisotropy. His work carried out in the field of Discretization brings together such families of science as Classification of discontinuities, Elasticity and Finite strain theory.

His work deals with themes such as Solid mechanics, Minification, Isotropy, Petrov–Galerkin method and Element, which intersect with Applied mathematics. His work in Mechanics addresses subjects such as Fracture, which are connected to disciplines such as Porosity. His research integrates issues of Brittleness and Extended finite element method in his study of Fracture mechanics.
