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.
Are you aware of the following applications of Computational Mechanics?
Computational Mechanics has had a profound impact on science and technology over the past three decades. CM has transformed much of classical Newtonian theory into practical tools for prediction and understanding of complex systems. These tools are used in the simulation and design of current and future advances in technology throughout the developed and developing world. There has been a pervasive impact on manufacturing, communication, transportation, medicine, defense and many other areas central to modern civilization.
Computational Mechanics incorporates new models of physical and biological systems based upon quantum, molecular and biological mechanics and has an enormous potential for future growth and applicability.
The success of CM will ultimately be judged by its effectiveness in solving real-world problems of interest to society and in providing deeper understanding of natural phenomena and engineering systems. The field has been enormously successful to date because of its unprecedented predictive powers (though computer modeling), making possible the simulation of complex physical events and the use of these simulations to design engineering systems.
