Division of Solid Mechanics (SOLMEK)

Mechanics is one of the fundamentals of engineering science. It deals with motion and equilibrium of bodies. Solid mechanics considers all aspects of the behavior of deformable bodies under loads.

Education

Our teaching includes basic mechanics of particles and rigid bodies, as well as basic solid mechanics. We also offer a large number of advanced courses in, for instance, continuum mechanics, finite element methods, mechanics of materials, multibody dynamics, structural optimization and biomechanics.

Research

The interests of the Division of Solid Mechanics include theoretical and computational aspects of continuum mechanics, structural mechanics, multibody dynamics and thermodynamics. In particular, research is performed in the subfields of structural optimization, biomechanics, structural integrity of air vehicles and high temperature mechanics.
