Solid Mechanics & Materials Engineering | Engineering Science Department - University of Oxford

Welcome to the Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering Group.

Based in both central Oxford and at Begbroke Science Park, this is one of the largest groups in the department, having grown in size over recent years. 

Research in Solid Mechanics has a long tradition in Oxford, initiated by Hooke, whose work on the elasticity of springs may be regarded as the foundation of the mechanics of deformable solids.

At present activities spread over a wide field and are strongly focussed towards practical industrial applications.
