The CEMAM workshop will be held at KAUST from July 1st to 3rd 2013. The event will be focused on the mechanics of solids and structures with applications to composite materials.
I am co-organizing a mini-symposium on « Computational damage mechanics of composite materials » in the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM 2012) with Dr. Gilles Lubineau at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Dr. Glaucio H. Paulino at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The mini-symposium welcomes contributions highlighting the critical role of virtual design and simulation in the development of advanced composite structures. Discussions held will cover a variety of topics, however the focus will be upon application-oriented problems through which simulation and modeling can provide real added-value with respect to pure experimental design approaches.
