Welcome to the homepage of the Multiscale Computational Mechanics Laboratory (MCML) at Vanderbilt University ! At MCML, we concentrate our efforts to bringing understanding to nonlinear mechanical response of materials and structures through multi-scale computational modeling and simulation. Our research involves computational characterization of the failure response of heterogeneous systems that involve multiple temporal and spatial scales subjected to extreme and/or dynamic loading conditions, and development of enabling computational methodologies.
Prospective graduate students: Please visit the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the School of Engineering and the Graduate School to learn more about the graduate programs at Vanderbilt University. Also, reach out to Caglar Oskay for recent research activities and opportunities.
