What is CA2M?
Computer-Aided Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering is a research group based at the University of Sheffield dedicated to computer modelling, analysis and design.
CA2M aim is to enhance predictive computational simulations and to solve outstanding engineering/scientific problems by means of
'....Ray Clough told me that the Finite Element Method is a good thing.
We both don't know anything about it. Let's try...'

CA2M investigates a wide range of topics including:
All above is conducted by using novel computational tools (XFEM, XIGA, DEM,...) for enhanced reliability and accurateness.
