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:

  • The vertical content of the program is related to structural analysis and design . It studies and analyzes finite element numerical techniques for designing structures such as beams, plates and sheet metal. It also studies the constitutive equations that define the behavior and, therefore, the response of materials.
  • The horizontal content of the program is related to continuous media mechanics and the use of numerical techniques to solve structural problems . It studies the numerical resolution of linear and non-linear equations for heat transmission; equations for industrial processes such as stamping, rolling and forging metal; and Navier-Stokes equations.
  • This approach makes this doctoral program unique at the UPC and covers two areas of knowledge: continuous media mechanics and structural theory.
