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.

Advanced continuum mechanics

Composites design and innovation

The course offers the opportunity to gain practical experience in the characterization of fiber reinforced polymer and manufacturing/production methods for composite structures. The material is presented by lectures and visits to the laboratory. This is mainly a project based - hands on course

Advances in Contact Mechanics

(Coursebook not yet approved by the section)

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.
