Organisation profile

The Centre for Nonlinear Mechanics encourages links between mathematics and application or industrially motivated problems over a wide range of continuum mechanics, including fluids, solids, soft matter and complex materials. We do this by exploring problems with nonlinearity at their heart, using tools from analysis, computation and dynamical systems.

We have strong links with research groups in mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, architecture and civil engineering and industry. We welcome and encourage expanding this interaction.
