Solid Mechanics

Faculty of Engineering, LTH

Division of Solid Mechanics

The research at division of Solid Mechanics (Hållfasthetslära) is focused on constitutive modeling, nonlinear numerical methods, biomechanics and fracture mechanics. Numerical methods like the finite element method serve as the base in most of the research. The course range is to a great extent influenced by the research at the division.

The division of Solid Mechanics is responsible for courses in solid mechanics and engineering mechanics within several engineering programmes at LTH. The courses span everything from introductory courses to advanced courses.
