Eralp’s research is on finite element modelling of single and polycrystals for accurate prediction of mechanical properties of critical applications. Eralp received his PhD from RWTH Aachen University and worked as a researcher at various places including Carnegie Mellon University Mechanical Eng. Dept., Max Planck Institute for Iron Research, Cornell University Mechanical & Aerospace Eng. Dept., Sabanci University, and University of Bristol Mechanical Eng. on different projects involving finite element modelling and crystal mechanics that were linked with manufacturing processes such as micro machining, welding and additive manufacturing. He is currently working on physics-based modelling of nuclear materials.
