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 and functional response of multi-scale materials and structures through computational modeling and simulation. Our research focus is on computational characterization of the failure response of systems that involve multiple temporal and spatial scales, development of computational methodologies for failure and fragmentation of composite systems subjected to extreme loading conditions including impact, blast and crushing loads, characterization of complex and hybrid composite systems, and analysis of multiphysics problems.
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.
