Engineering Mechanics (EM)


The Engineering Mechanics (EM) Department’s mission is to advance science and technology related to mechanics, the mechanical properties of materials and mechanical engineering by using and developing novel computational methods and techniques.

The Department’s capabilities enable researchers to deal with the behavior of mechanical systems ranging from nano scale, through micro scale, and all the way to macro scale.

Utilizing the resources of high performance computing (HPC), researchers of the EM Department are able to power 6 major research directions spread across 3 capability groups:
