Applied Mechanics Division

Applied Mechanics Group

An ability to model the behavior and response of systems governed by fundamental laws of mechanics underpins much applied engineering analysis. The applied mechanics research group conducts research with the aim of developing satisfactory predictive models for such systems. Such research often involves a synthesis of theoretical, numerical and experimental work. Topics currently under investigation include; dynamic modeling of structurally flexible manipulators, finite element modeling of unbounded wave propagation, micro-mechanical models for predicting the stiffness and mechanical properties of cellular materials, modeling of ocean-structure interaction, numerical modeling of duct acoustics, numerical modeling of tire-pavement friction and noise generation, vibration and stability of beams and plates, the non-linear mechanics of plate deformation.
