Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials

This field emphasizes analytical, computational and experimental approaches that contribute to a basic understanding of and new insight into the properties and behavior of condensed matter and engineered materials. General areas of interest are large-strain and large-rotation inelastic solids, constitutive modeling and fracture mechanics. Computational algorithms center on boundary-element methods and the new class of meshless methods. Studies in structural mechanics involve the analysis and synthesis of low-mass structures, smart structures and engineered materials, with emphasis on stiffness, stability, toughness, damage-tolerance, longevity, optimal life-cycle costs and self-adaptivity.
