Static and dynamic, deterministic and probabilistic modeling and simulation of elastic and inelastic solids and structures.

Current work is on a number of theoretical, computational and practical application topics, related to development of the Finite Element Interpreter (FEI).

Real-ESSI Simulator is one prominent FEI application (alternative URLs: ;, that is developed and used to investigate:

Focus is on the development and use of methods that reduce Kolmogorov complexity and modeling uncertainty. In other words, focus is on development and use of methods that predict and inform rather than fit.

Recent presentations (pdf, html) and all other publications (pdf, html) are available.

Bibliography collected over years on different subjects: Computational Mechanics, Computer Sciences, Education.

Members of the Jeremić Computational Mechanics Research Group:
  • Dr. Boris Jeremić, Professor
  • Dr. Han Yang, Post-Doc,
  • Mr. Hexiang Wang, PhD candidate,
  • Mr. Yusheng Yang, visiting PhD student, Tongji University and UCD,

  • Graduate Recruiting and Visitors:
    We are actively recruiting students to work on further development and use of the Real-ESSI Simulator System.
    Long term funding for students is available through a number of funded projects.
    PhD level students are preferred, however MS students are also considered if they plan to follow their MS with a PhD.
    It would be very beneficial if potential students have a good knowledge and a strong interest in two or more of the following areas: A very important attribute of a potential student is a strong willingness and capability to master some of the above topics. Of course, we will provide significant help, guidance and expertise in that endeavor. Interested students are invited to do two things: Correspondence regarding admissions, ranking questions, etc. should be directed to our Graduate Program Coordinator, Dr. Lauren Worrell (
    Short or long term visits by researchers, students and post-doctoral fellows are only considered based on recommendations by our collaborators and colleagues.
