The MMD lab went to the winter Olympics of mechanics conferences last week – The United States National Congress on Theoretical & Applied Mechanics held in Lansing, MI. Held every four years in a different US city, this conference brings together theory oriented mechanicians from both the solids and fluids communities. Graduate students Meenakshi Sundaram and Naigeng Chen each presented their work for the first time. This conference also featured the 65th birthday symposium of Prof Lallit Anand of MIT and an unplanned reunion of the MIT solid mechanics class of 2006-2011 who all took continuum mechanics from Prof Anand in Fall 2006 and are now in tenure track positions.Image
