Computational Mechanics


This research line focuses on the development and use of computational modelling techniques for many types of materials and structures, ranging from crystalline metals or composite materials to nanoscale structures, brain and neurons. The activities of Dr Antoine Jérusalem and Prof Nik Petrinic involve the development and use of advanced numerical techniques such as massive parallel computation, XFEM, meshless methods, multiphysics codes, multiscale methods, etc.
