Dr. Fahrenthold's research interests are in the areas of system dynamics, impact dynamics, and material modeling. He has developed a variety of thermodynamically consistent, energy based, multiphysics modeling methods for nonlinear materials and systems. This work has included formulations in Lagrangian, Eulerian, and Arbitrary- Lagrangian frames and has employed finite element, particle, and hybrid particle-element kinematics. His research includes parallel code development and supercomputer based simulation of model validation experiments.
