The Lightweight Structures Research Group (Kelompok Keahlian Struktur Ringan – KKSR) is a world-renowned research center pursuing leading solutions to global challenges arising from impact mechanics, composite materials, and structures, material modeling, fatigue, and fracture mechanics, structural design and optimizations, dynamics, and vibration.
Arief completed his Ph.D. from Lightweight Structures Research Group. Upon his defense, Arief is now working at the Indonesia Defense University as a lecturer. Recently, Dr. Arief published several papers related to his Ph.D. topics in reputable international journals such
Afdhal recently defended his dissertation entitled: ” Development of a high fidelity anisotropic-viscoplastic constitutive model for finite element analysis of cold-rolled sheet metals”. In this research, Afdhal proposed an industry-friendly constitutive model for predicting earing phenomena in cup-drawn sheet metals
