Applied Mechanics

This Department is known for specialized applied mechanics capabilities in structures, materials and fluids. Its capabilities include nonlinear structural analysis, blast and impact evaluation, piping and pressure vessel analysis, seismic soil-structure interaction, and material aging.

These capabilities are used to model and test the structural, thermal and fluid challenges associated with producing nuclear power, operating experimental reactors, simulating accidents or natural hazards, and confining hazardous substances during transport.
