Background and activities


During the spring 2016 Henrik finished his Master of Science degree in Engineering and ICT with specialization in structural engineering at NTNU. The master's thesis was written for SIMLab titled "Experimental and Numerical Study on Perforated Steel Plates Subjected to Blast Loading".


The fall 2016 Henrik started his PhD in the Toppforsk project FractAl titled "Multiscale modelling and simulation of failure in aluminium structures". The motivation behind the project is to establish accurate, efficient and robust models of material behaviour and fracture at various scales that can be used in the design of aluminium structures and thus reduce the need for extensive and costly test programs.
