Thomas Weinhart


I love to analyse interesting physical phenomena and to solve mathematical puzzles. My goal is to understand the world every day a little more.

I currently work on understanding and predicting the behaviour of granular materials, ranging from pharmaceutical/food powders, raw materials in the mining and manufacturing industry, to geophysical landslides and avalanches. In particular, I work on contact mechanics (elasto-plastic-frictional contacts, wet and dry adhesion, sintering), discrete particle simulations (, continuum-mechanical models for granular flows, and multiscale-coupling between discrete and continuum methods.

I am also cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of MercuryLab, providing industry access to particle simulation software. I am responsible for creating state-of-the-art computational tools to understand, predict and optimise industrial bulk handling and processing equipment. In particular, I am the lead developer of MercuryDPM, our innovative, open-source discrete particle solver, and MercuryCG, the advanced analysis tool integrated into MercuryDPM.
