Why choose Computational Mechanics?
Did you know that the largest waves along the Norwegian coast can be more than 100 meters high and are located on the interface between light and heavy water far below the sea surface? How much damage can a flood wave - tsunami - cause along the coast?
Can gigantic waves in the ocean explain mysterious shipwrecks? Are you interested in safety or the environment for ships and oil platforms in stormy or arctic environments? Do you wish to work with industrial flow problems such as simultaneous transport of oil and gas in the same pipeline, so-called multiphase flow? Or do you want to learn about how biomechanics is used to understand the mechanisms behind heart failure, strokes or Alzheimer´s disease?
The Computational Mechanics programme option gives practical experience with basic scientific methodology and thinking, and it teaches you how to develop various tools based on mathematics, computer science and mechanics and to use these tools for solving important problems within science, industry and society. Computational Mechanics includes both fluid and solid state mechanics with a common basis from continuum mechanics.
