Computational Solid Mechanics

The group works in the formulation, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods for complex problems in Computational Mechanics of Solids, Fluids, and Structures. We have developed a state-of-the-art simulation framework for Computational Mechanics with capabilities for linear/nonlinear, static/transient problems in our areas of interest, including complex material models. Specific topics on which we are currently working are:

  • Robust time integration algorithms
  • Meshless methods
  • Fluid/solid interaction
  • Nonlinear continuum and structural mechanics
  • Numerical methods for coupled problems
  • Multiscale material modeling
