Research Statement
Professor Prévost's research interests center on computational solid mechanics, wave propagation and transient effects in porous media, multi-phase multi-component flows in porous media, nonlinear constitutive theories, dynamic instabilities and localization of deformations in solids, thermoelasticity, electro-magneto-solid interaction effects, finite element methods. In his recent work he has been working on crack nucleation and propagation, xfem finite element methods.
