The mission of the Engineering Mechanics Institute is to serve the engineering community through the development and application of engineering mechanics by anticipating and adapting to new challenges that will face tomorrow’s engineers and by creating an environment that facilitates professional growth to ensure that these future challenges will be met. The Institute seeks to establish a presence at the forefront of new thrusts of mechanics by promoting the most innovative developments in the field, regardless of the discipline of the ultimate user. The Institute also seeks to provide a home not only for those involved in the traditional disciplines, but also for those involved with emerging areas of mechanics. Additionally, the Institute seeks to promote the interdependence of engineering mechanics and other disciplines by providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practicing engineers, industry representatives, citizen groups, public officials and others.
The Center for Extreme Events Research has been established to offer solutions to a wide range of challenges associated with extreme events based on the most advanced computational and experimental technologies. Challenges we address are: protect the nation's built infrastructure; perform extreme event mitigation and recovery; and protect bio-systems injury from extreme loading.
The Mission of the UCSD Department of Structural Engineering is to provide a comprehensive education and training to engineers using a holistic approach to structural systems engineering by emphasizing and building on the commonality of engineering structures at the levels of materials, mechanics, analysis and design.
The American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries. Founded in 1852, ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society. ASCE stands at the forefront of a profession that plans, designs, constructs, and operates society’s economic and social engine – the built environment – while protecting and restoring the natural environment. Through the expertise of its active membership, ASCE is a leading provider of technical and professional conferences and continuing education, the world’s largest publisher of civil engineering content, and an authoritative source for codes and standards that protect the public.
Birkhäuser Science is recognized worldwide for its experience and innovation, which come to life in our books. Since the beginning of the 20th century, Birkhäuser has gained a reputation for quality publications in the sciences. We currently have more than 40 active international book series and 38 active academic journals in our product line. This includes interdisciplinary publications in fields such as mathematical biology, engineering, statistics, and mathematical physics. Birkhäuser is part of the Springer Nature publishing group.
Headquartered in Livermore, California, Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC) develops LS-DYNA and a suite of related and supporting engineering software products. LSTC was founded in 1987 by John O. Hallquist to commercialize as LS-DYNA the public domain code that originated as DYNA3D. DYNA3D was developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, by LSTC’s founder, John O. Hallquist. A team of engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists are engaged in the development of LS-DYNA, LS-PrePost, LS-OPT, LS-TaSC (Topology), and LSTC's Dummy & Barrier models for use in various industries, including Automobile Design, Aerospace, Manufacturing, and Bioengineering. LS-DYNA development is focused on one code methodology that includes Implicit, Explicit, SMP and MPP solvers. It is optimized on all platforms including clusters running Unix, Linux, and Windows operating systems.
The UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering is a premier research school set apart by our entrepreneurial culture and integrative engineering approach. The Jacobs School's Mission: Educate Tomorrow's Technology Leaders; Conduct Leading Edge Research and Drive Innovation; Transfer Discoveries for the Benefit of Society. Our education models focus on deep and broad engineering fundamentals, enhanced by real-world design and research, often in partnership with industry. Through our Team Internship Program and GlobalTeams in Engineering Service program, for example, we encourage students to develop their communications and leadership skills while working in the kind of multi-disciplinary team environment experienced by real-world engineers.
