Applied Mechanics & Design

Courses pertaining to solid mechanics closely support research topics in structural analysis, finite elements, nonlinear material behavior, contact and surface mechanics, viscoelasticity, and environmental effects on materials. Ongoing research in web handling, an interdisciplinary field encompassing solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and dynamics systems, provides modern laboratory facilities as well as advanced studies of winding mechanics, high speed winding systems, layered structures produced in the winding process, and of material properties particular to polymers and paper products.
