Mechanics describes the movement, deformation and balance of bodies and systems. In the 21st Century, mechanical sciences go well beyond the “art of building a machine”, the definition given by the ancient Greeks. Within SCIENCES, which presents the most current state of the art, solid and fluid mechanics, and its applications to natural environments, the living world or civil engineering are discussed, with particular care given to the development of associated numerical simulation methods.
