A subdivision of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Physics and Astronomy
Division of Applied Mechanics

Applied mechanics is a broad topic that is a subset of the activities of mechanical engineers, aeronautical engineers, bioengineers, materials scientists, mining engineers, naval engineers, geophysicts, physicists, mathematicians, and many other types of engineers and scientists.

Affiliated Departments

Since applied mechanics is a truly interdisciplinary subject, this subdivision provides links to several departments and is linked from the pages of several departments.

Subdivisions of Applied Mechanics

"In the application of the natural sciences, mechanics is complemented by thermodynamics, the study of heat and more generally energy, and electromechanics, the study of electricity and magnetism." -- Nobel Laureate Gilbert N. Lewis

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools." - Douglas Adams (from Mostly Harmless)

Clifford Truesdell on a paper on isotropic elasticity:
"This paper, whose intent is stated in its title, gives wrong solutions to trivial problems. The basic error, however, is not new."
