Andrey Jivkov is a Professor of Solid Mechanics in the School of Engineering. His research is driven by the needs to understand better and predict in-service performance of engineering materials. This involves a range of topics, such as damage, fracture, mass transport and environmental degradation of metallic and quasi-brittle materials. The work is focused on the analysis of coupled problems using microstructure- and mechanisms-informed models. The aims are to predict engineering length-scale properties from meso-scale principles, which is a microstructure length-scale analogue of the first principles calculations used in atomic scale modelling.
