The Division of Mechanics


Mechanics is one of the fundamentals of engineering science and is the basis on which a number of applied subjects is founded. It deals with motion and equilibrium of bodies and stretches from the studies of general principles established by Newton, Euler and Cauchy to newly developed subfields such as computational mechanics and dynamical systems.

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

The division is responsible for a large number of courses, both undergraduate as well as on graduate level.
