The website dedicated to Legato group is online: legato-team.eu !
Team Legato aims at building intuitive and interactive platforms for computational mechanics problems which allow the users to interact with their models and hence gain insights into unconventional counter-intuitive phenomena.
To make such platforms possible, we develop robust parallel numerical methods for direct and statistical inverse problems for free interface problems in mechanics.
We concentrate on error-controlled models and associated discretization schemes for multi-scale and multi-field problems and have been focusing on applications in Computational Biomechanics and Computational Materials Science.
Examples include the prediction of equilibrium phases in nano-composites, simulating fracture in complex aerospace structures, modeling cutting in real-time for surgical simulation.
Our research approach is multi-disciplinary. Our work has been carried out in collaboration with Mathematicians, Computer Scientists, Materials Scientists and Surgeons.
We publish all our codes in the open-source community and have been, in particular, collaborating with major open-source projects such as FEniCS and SOFA. We have also released our own open-source platforms for advanced discretization techniques such as the extended finite element method, meshless methods, isogeometric boundary element and finite element analysis with geometry-independent field approximations.
