Ongoing research at the Computational Mechanics Laboratory includes the study of:

  • Stress computation and fracture prediction in the Femur’s neck due to side falls: FEA investigation
  • Multibody simulation of a hopping machine
  • Nonlinear finite element analysis of extended shear tab steel connections
  • Nonlinear FEA of precast hybrid beam-column connections subjected to cyclic loads
  • Low-weight and low-stiffness cellular metal alloys for biomedical applications
