Latest Solid mechanics Stories
There’s no doubt that last autumn’s superstorm Sandy left a trail of destruction as it churned up the eastern seaboard, making a bulls-eye run at New York City. But a new study from researchers at the University of Utah has found that the storm also shook things up a bit.
New capping system unites synthetic grass and EPDM geomembrane for impermeable, long-lasting cover of landfills and land reclamation projects. Austin, Texas
When materials are stressed, they eventually change shape.
MIT engineers have worked out a computational model which shows how solar energy can be more or less funneled before it’s captured, ensuring an efficient and effective solar energy capturing mechanism.
NASA's first mobile application and software that models the behavior of earthquake faults to improve earthquake forecasting and our understanding of earthquake processes are co-winners of NASA's 2012 Software of the Year Award.
Plagued by a life ruled by the stress of a birth-defect, surviving abuse, alcoholism, and unemployment, author Richard Murphy dug deep into his source of strength, and found inspiration to carry
Computational Mechanics is a scientific journal founded in 1986 and published monthly by Springer. The journal covers all aspects of computational mechanics and reports original research in the field. It focuses on areas that involve the rational application of mechanics, mathematics, and numerical methods in the practice of modern engineering. Areas covered include solid and structural mechanics, multi-body system dynamics, constitutive modeling, inelastic and finite deformation response,...
