El grup REMM centra la seva recerca en temes dels àmbits de Mecànica del Medi Continu, Resistència de Materials i Enginyeria d’Estructures. En els darrers cinc anys la recerca s’ha centrat en dos temes: els components i estructures metàl·lics de paret prima (aplicació pràctica de la Teoria Generalitzada de Bigues, anàlisi del vinclament distorsional en perfils perforats de secció oberta, comportament i disseny de xapes de secció trapezoïdal corbades) i les lloses mixtes d’acer i formigó. El grup empra eines analítiques, numèriques i experimentals. El Grup ha assolit un alta activitat de transferència de tecnologia, col·laborant amb empreses nacionals i internacionals. En el sector de les prestatgeries metàl·liques (estructures metàl·liques de seccions de paret prima) el nostre Laboratori es de referència a nivell europeu. i col·labora amb les organitzacions normalitzadores europees i americanes.

Los objetivos del grupo son la investigación y la transferencia de tecnología en el ámbito de la mecánica de medios continuos y de las estructuras en la ingenieria, mediante la aplicación de métodos analíticos, de simulación mecánica y experimentales.

The objectives of the group are the research and technology transfer in the areas of continuum mechanics and structural engineering, by the application of analytical, numerical and experimental methods.
