Structural and Computational Mechanics

Welcome to the webpage of the Scientific Area of Structural and Computational Mechanics (ACMEC) of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEM) of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). ACMEC is one of the eight main scientific and disciplinary areas of the DEM, and it provides the framework to the recruitment and promotion of the faculty members of IST experts in our fields of research.

Roll up-3

ACMEC aims to contribute to the national and international recognition of DEM, IST and the University of Lisbon. ACMEC comprises two groups of curricular units: (i) Computational Mechanics and (ii) Solids and Structural Mechanics. The main objectives are to provide an exciting academic environment that exposes our students to the most cutting edge scientific and technological problems, promote their skills to solve these problems, and transfer the impact of our research to the scientific and technical communities, as well as to the society in general.

The research of the faculty members of ACMEC is developed at the Center of Mechanical Design (CPM) of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering (IDMEC), within the framework of the Associated Laboratory for Energy, Transports and Aeronautics (LAETA). The research interests are three-fold: (i) Simulation and design of mechanical systems. (ii) Modelling and optimization of structures and materials: (iii) Advanced characterization of structural materials.
