Strength of materials, or mechanics of materials, is the study of the behaviour of solid objects subject to stresses and strains. The study of strength of materials refers to methods of calculating the stresses and strains in structural members, such as beams, columns, and shafts.

The stress and damage characterisation facilities available at our four university partners cover a wide range of techniques.
