The activities of the PAS Committee on Mechanics are concerned with research in the following scientific areas:

  • solid mechanics and particularly mechanics of materials,
  • structural mechanics,
  • fluid mechanics,
  • biomechanics,
  • dynamics of material systems,
  • mechatronics,
  • optimization of systems and processes,
  • detection and investigation of the laws governing motion, deformation and strenth of material media,
  • quantum mechanics.

The PAS Committee on Mechanics has been established in 1960.

The Committee acts as the National Committee for Cooperation with the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and International Centre for Mechanical Sciences (CISM).
