Oxford Solid Mechanics is an initiative to promote
interaction between researchers in Mathematics, Materials
Science, Engineering and Physics in the University of Oxford
who work on the mechanics of solids across the full range of
spatial and temporal scales. This website collects together information
about people and events in Oxford that are of interest
to the Oxford Solid Mechanics community.
