I hope the lack of response would me some our helping me with this one, but I feel there may be skepticism. I can assure you this is a very legitimate question. I understand this may lean toward more an engineering crowd, but the basis of math is a common denominator. I did not see an area of strength of materials and statics (not statistics) so this may drive you in the right direction.
Thank you for your time, it will be used in the field.
