Solid Mechanics

SP's Mechanical laboratory is regularly performing tests, which span from a simple tensile test to transient loading with large deformations. There is an increasing interest to solve these events by finite element calculations and SP's close relation between FE-calculations and laboratory resources guaranties unique possibilities for calculation, simulation and verification.
