Division research focus

The research focus of the Division of Mechanics is computational mechanics in its broadest sense, which may involve solids, fluids, soft matter, and their interfaces, with a particular interest in multi-scale and multi-physics theories and methodologies across macro-, meso-, and micor-scales. Computational mechanics requires physical modeling, mathematical analysis, and numerical algorithms with a specific emphasis on using modern computer architectures to perform challenging large-scale scientific computations for systems of great significance in science and engineering.
