Mechanics of Material

  • Broader Impact

Material mechanics coupled with other fields (such as magnetics, electro-chemistry) is one of the most fundamental fields that need lots of new development in order to fully understand the real material. However, lots of problems prevented the development of this field. Such as a robust and efficient method for the calculation of fluid. And large deformation problems in the field of contact problems.
