Areas of expertise Solid mechanics is about understanding the way engineering materials respond to loading to improve the efficiency and safety of structures. The Solid Mechanics group has a long tradition of undertaking industrially motivated research which studies how materials behave when they are subjected to thermal and mechanical loads. The group has expertise in both metallic and non-metallic materials and undertakes research using advanced numerical and analytical methods, validated by experimental testing. A key motivation for this research is structural integrity assessment.
