The Computational and Applied Mechanics Laboratory (CAMLAB) is a scientific initiative that aims at developing and democratizing modern numerical technologies for engineering modeling, analysis and simulation with emphasis on the mechanics of solids and structures. We are strongly committed to the development of numerical simulation tools in the form of free and open-source software to promote the use of these modern technologies and make them a standard in the engineering numerical simulation community. The laboratory is led by Dr. Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin and is a place where research is conducted on development, implementation, numerical assessment and benchmarking of finite element methods, virtual element methods, meshfree and particle methods, and polygonal and polyhedral mesh generators.
