Computational Mechanics is a mature discipline in Science and Engineering that develops computational methodologies to characterize, predict and simulate physical events. CMRL at JHU is involved in a large and diverse computational research program, with significant national and international recognition. We have made pioneering contributions to the field of multi-scale, multiphysics modeling of heterogeneous structures and materials and manufacturing processes.
Chartered in July 2013, The Center for Integrated Structure-Material Modeling & Simulation (CISMMS) creates a collaborative, multidisciplinary research and educational program to foster foundational advances in computational modeling, simulation and design in the fields of Integrated Computational Materials Science and Engineering (ICMSE) , Multi-Scale Analysis (MSA) and Computational Structure-Material Analysis and Design (CSMAD). CISMMS creates three dimensional and computerized models and simulations to study and improve the design of materials ranging from automobiles and air craft to biomaterials and electronics.
