The Engineering Mechanics - Industrial Manufacturing Processes Group was formed in 1998 at the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), Barcelona, Spain.

The Group was established for the development of computational tools for thermo-mechanical modeling and advanced non-linear analysis tools.

The outcomes are generally implemented in COMET, a Finite Element based framework for the solution of engineering problems in both academic and industrial environments.

COMET includes multiple classical and advanced elements formulations as well as a wide constitutive law library (viscoelasto-plasticity, small and large strain plasticity, damage models, etc).

Multiple software modules of COMET have been successfully commercialized in Spain and worldwide for different industrial applications:
