Welcome to the XV Finnish Mechanics Days!

Forum for academic and industrial research in theoretical, computational, and experimental mechanics.

The conference is held on October 2 - 4, 2024, at Jamk University of Applied Sciences, Jyväskylä (Rajakatu 35, 40200 Jyväskylä, Finland).

This event is organized in association with IFME 2024 Forum (International Forum of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering).

Collaboration across diverse fields, including civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and fluid dynamics, as well as fostering partnerships between industry and academia are key elements of this conference's ethos. 
The primary objective of the Finnish Mechanics Days is to stimulate academic research and its alignment with industrial development in mechanics disciplines, from solid and soil mechanics to fluid dynamics. It offers a gathering point for researchers, engineers, educators, and professionals to connect, engage in discussions, and exchange knowledge.

Throughout its history, the Finnish Mechanics Days have consistently fulfilled their mission of bringing together individuals involved in mechanics, strength theory, and related mathematical challenges. This enduring tradition continues to provide a vital forum for advancing the field of mechanics in Finland and beyond. In this particular event, one emphasis is to consider how artificial intelligence will advance the field in near future.

Venue & Stay

Here you will the useful information you need regarding your stay during The XV Finnish Mechanics Days.


The Finnish Mechanics Days conference had its inaugural edition in Oulu in 1982 and has continued as a triennial event since then, except for the disruption caused by the pandemic in 2021. 

This conference serves as a vital platform for exploring theoretical, computational, and experimental mechanics covering solids, soils, rocks, and fluids. It spans a wide range of engineering applications, encompassing structural analysis, mechanics of materials, fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, fracture mechanics, fatigue, thermomechanics, micromechanics, contact mechanics, structural optimization, numerical analysis, multibody dynamics, mechatronics, and the design of structures and machines, as well as their industrial and medical applications.


We are happy to help you!
