Ted Belytschko

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Professor Ted Belytschko, a Founding Director of USACM, on September 15, 2014. A pioneer in the field of computational mechanics, he was instrumental in the forming of USACM. He will be missed.

Welcome to USACM

USACM'S MISSION To promote, foster, organize and coordinate various activities concerning computational mechanics in the United States and to represent U.S. interests in computational mechanics as an affiliate of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM).

What is computational mechanics

Computational Mechanics (CM) is concerned with the use of computational methods and devices to study events governed by the principles of mechanics. CM is a fundamentally important part of computational science and engineering, concerned with the use of computational approaches to characterize, predict and simulate physical events and engineering systems governed by the laws of mechanics.
