The Applied Mechanics and Bioengineering Group (AMB) is one of the research groups of the Biomedical Engineering Division of the Aragón Institute of Engineering Research (I3A).. In addition to the research activity, AMB is involved in teaching undergraduate courses in the School of Engineering and Architecture (Escuela de Ingeniería y Arquitectura, EINA) at the University of Zaragoza. AMB also coordinates the Master Program in Applied Mechanics and actively participates in the inter-university Master and Doctoral Programs in Biomedical Engineering. AMB is also deeply involved in promoting collaborations and coordinated projects with other research groups at national and international level. Research conducted at AMB is focused on the Mechanics of Deformable Solids and Advanced Numerical Methods, mainly on the characterization and simulation of complex materials and processes, with particular emphasis in biological tissue and biomaterials. However, our research also deals with the development of the necessary numerical techniques for the approximate solution of the resulting models (finite elements, boundary element methods, and meshless methods among others).
