Continuum Mechanics Seminar Series

Organisers: Apala Majumdar, University of Strathclyde and Joseph Harris, University of Strathclyde

Fridays at 14.00 GMT via Zoom

Continuum Mechanics is a hugely successful and thriving subject in UK applied mathematics, typically in the context of modelling problems in physical sciences, engineering and biology. In light of the pandemic crisis, we hope to bring together leading Continuum Mechanics research groups from around the world. This virtual seminar series will serve as an excellent platform for large national and international consortia, funding opportunities and as an inspiring resource for junior researchers. This seminar series is also endorsed by the journal Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids
