Goals of The Mechanics Discussions

The Mechanics Lectures (TMD) enables rapid communication of research through hosted-webinars and video-lectures to highlights the role of mechanics in multi-disciplinary areas across engineering, medicine, physics, chemistry and biology. TMD provides an avenue for lectures in all areas including experimental, theoretical and computational investigations in solid and fluid mechanics. In addition, TMD likes to highlight tools developed as a part of research and teaching and also tools of interest to young researchers.

TMD lays particular emphasis on open-source publishing. All of TMD’s lectures and webinar videos as open-source and are available through Zenodo (for download) and Youtube (for viewers). In addition to the videos, the supplementary materials like published papers and discussion questions are also made available through Zenodo. The video lectures and webinar vidoes are telecasted live.

TMD aims to provide a larger community focus to the application of research in areas of societal importance. The talks of TMD are open to all public to highlight the importance and application of mechanics in daily applications as well.
