Computational and Applied Mechanics

Mechanics research at UB emphasizes the use of numerical methods to solve problems of solids, structures and biomechanics, including composite materials, as well as viscoelastic and biomaterials.

Research focuses on finding efficient computational schemes to complete the solution. We emphasize experimental mechanics to validate and inform theoretical models.
