Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group

World leading in the development and application of computer-aided technologies which predict the physical behaviour, performance, reliability, and maintainability of complex engineering systems and products.

The Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group (CMRG) has research interests in the development of computer models for multi-physics/multi-scale predictions, numerical optimisation, failure analysis, reliability and maintenance of engineering structures. A particular focus of its modelling research is applied to electronics manufacturing and electronic systems. Under the direction of Professor Chris Bailey, the group is one of the main contributors to the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process Analysis.
