Continuum Mechanics Seminar Series

 16 Apr 2021
1400 GMT


  • Apala Majumdar, University of Strathclyde
  • Joseph Harris, University of Strathclyde


This seminar series ended on 16 April 2021

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, the series brought together leading Continuum Mechanics research groups from around the world. This virtual seminar series served 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.
