The Doctoral Program in Structural Analysis deals with the advanced simulation of engineering problems using computational mechanics of solids, fluids and structures as well as advanced simulation techniques, development of calculation programs, experimental verification, and investigation of specific cases .
The Program covers the simulation of complex mechanical and structural systems , including nonlinear material behavior and structural effects , the coupling of physical phenomena and different scales.
The Program provides training at the doctoral level in advanced technics and scientific problems for the simulation of structural engineering disciplines . This is the basis for the engineering design of high technology in a wide range of applications (civil, industrial, aerospace, marine, environmental, mechanical, biological, etc.).
Topics covered in the Program are a growing field, with a high impact on both academic and industrial, and generates a large number of research activities under strong international cooperation.
This doctoral program responds to two types of needs:
This approach makes this doctoral program unique at the UPC and covers two areas of knowledge: continuous media mechanics and structural theory.
