Continuum Mechanics provides the theoretical foundations for the mechanics of solids and fluids. In particular, continuum mechanic is used in stress and strength analyses of structures. My research is concerned with the geometric and analytic aspects of the fundamental notions of continuum mechanics such as fluxes, stresses and equilibrium. See the following
