Courses

Continuum mechanics (for GC)

This class addresses Continuum Mechanics, which is fundamental component of the civil engineering curriculum. It covers the concepts of deformation, stress, general principles, equilibrium equations, and constitutive laws.

Numerical modelling of solids and structures

Solids and structures numerical modeling is addressed through the finite-element method. Purely analytic aspects are first presented, before describing numerical interpolation, integration and resolution of solid mechanics problems by using various finite element types.

Fundamentals of Fracture with Fundamental Papers

The principles of fracture mechanics, from the energy balance approach of Griffith through modern computational approaches, will be introduced using key papers. Phase-field modeling and atomistic processes in fracture, as well as experimental developments, will complement theory.

CCMX Tribology and Surfaces Interactions

This course is intended to give to the participants (graduates, researchers and industrial professionals) a solid background in tribology and surface interactions. It covers the fundamentals concepts of tribology including surfaces, contact mechanics, friction, lubrication and wear.
