The Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group is a world leader in the development and application of computer-aided technologies which predict the physical behaviour, performance, reliability, and maintainability of complex engineering systems and products. The group’s director is Professor Chris Bailey.
Particular focus of the group’s work is the development of software tools and modelling techniques for multi-physics predictions, failure analysis, reliability, and optimisation. These technologies predict the performance and reliability of electronic, photonic, and micro/nano-scale components used in many industrial sectors such as transport, medical and telecommunications.
The Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group (CMRG) is part of the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process Analysis based in the historic buildings of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, now occupied by the University of Greenwich.
