The Computational Mechanics Group (CoMeG) aims to become a centre of excellence in the advancement of computational and experimental. The group has been formed two years ago and it has secured a considerable amount of research grant from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MoSTI) of Malaysia to support our research activities. The group has an excellent network with industries, research institutions, as well as universities such as TNB Research, Solution Engineering, SIRIM Berhad, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), and Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMREC) Malaysia. The group research interests are on near-net shape manufacturing of mechanical components through powder route, composite materials, thermal stress analysis, etc. including experimental research & finite element analysis for both metallic and non-metallic materials.  
 

 


 

 
  Areas of Interest
   
  1. Development of high strength near-net shape mechanical components.
  2. Research on composite materials.
  3. Development of high-temperature LCHS (low-cost-high-stiffness) alumina-based ceramics.
  4. Warm powder compaction and processing of metallic & non-metallic powders.
  5. Development of polymer-based composites for crashworthiness applications.
  6. Research on thermal degradation of boiler tubes.
  7. Development of metallic alloys.
  8. Research on thermal fatigue of metallic materials
