Fluid and Solid Mechanics

Tracking Particles and FrontsGraduate research projects in applied mechanics span a wide spectrum of topics in both fluid mechanics and solid mechanics. Applications range from astrophysical fluid dynamics to biomechanics to optics manufacturing.

Some of these projects involve cooperative work with local industry, with the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE). Facilities include extensive computational resources and state-of-the-art optical metrology and fabrication equipment located at LLE.
