Jesper Hattel's research area is numerical
modelling of manufacturing processes, such as casting,
moulding and welding. The materials considered could
be metals, polymers and concrete. The applications vary
from micro-scale over parts for automotive industry to
huge parts such as wind turbine blades.
The area is highly cross-disciplinary and characterized by
multi-physics modelling involving areas like CFD, Numerical
Heat Transfer, Computational Metarials Science and
Computational Solid Mechanics.
