KTH Solid Mechanics seminar series

The seminars are arranged by the division of Solid Mechanics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. The presentations aim at showing approaches and examples of solid mechanics research within different fields of applications. The audience is therefore heteroclite, working with solid mechanics aspects, such as computational mechanics, contact mechanics, experimental mechanics, fracture & fatigue, non-linear continuum mechanics, optimization, plasticity, towards the description of batteries, fiber-based materials, powder materials, biological tissues and many more. The attendance is free of charge and a seminar takes about an hour followed by discussions.
