Abstract submission open for mini-symposium "Micromechanics-based Nonlocal Continuum Models" at ESMC 2018, Bologna, Italy

Micromechanics-based Nonlocal Continuum Models organised by Lorenzo Bardella (University of Brescia) and Samuel Forest (Mines ParisTech CNRS)  Submission deadline: November 15th, 2017  Nowadays, problems involving more physics and more length and time scales have become very relevant in engineering applications. Theoretical frameworks limited to conventional continua are often inadequate to model such problems.

Ph.D. position opened at the University of Brescia, Italy

The group of Mechanics of Solids and Structures at the School of Engineering at the University of Brescia (Italy) has an open PhD position. The appointment will begin on January 1st 2014 for three full years.

The following topics are of interest:

1. small-scale plasticity of metals, with emphasis on modelling the size effect through strain gradient plasticity theories and dislocation mechanics. 2. micromechanics of composite materials, with emphasis on modelling failure.

Syntactic and Composite Foams III Conference

The international conference "Syntactic and Composite Foams III" will be held in Cetraro (Italy) May 29th - June 3rd, 2011. Abstracts of approximately 300 words should be submitted no later than January 15th, 2011 for oral presentations and March 1st, 2011 for poster presentations.  More information at the web page:
