Minisymposium on Mechanics and Physics of Soft Matter Materials

Rui Huang's picture

As part of USNCTAM2014 (17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical & Applied Mechanics) to be held at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan from June 15-20, 2014, we are organizing a Minisymposium entitled

Mechanics and Physics of Soft Matter Materials 

within the Mechanics of Solids and Structures Technical Track. Detailed information on the conference is available at http://www.usnctam2014.org

We invite you to submit abstracts to this Minisymposium at https://www.egr.msu.edu/conference/. The extended deadline for the abstract submission is January 6, 2014.

The following selected keywords serve exemplarily as guideline for potential contributions: 

  • Development of physical models, experiments and numerical techniques for soft matter materials
  • Modeling micromechanical mechanisms in soft matter engineered materials like polymers, foams, nonwoven fabrics, granular materials, or gels
  • Modeling micromechanical mechanisms in soft matter natural materials like cells, biological tissues, or muscles
  • Modeling microstructural driven large deformations in soft matter materials
  • Multiphysical coupling aspects (mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetical, chemical)
  • Failure in soft matter materials
  • Advanced simulation techniques at various length and time scales through finite element methods, meshfree methods, atomistic simulations, or electronic structure calculations
  • Coupling of length- and time-scales through advanced homogenization techniques
  • Multidisciplinary contributions focusing on applications in material systems like shape memory and conductive polymers, dielectric elastomers, or soft active structures and devices

Minisymposium organizers: Christian Linder (Stanford), Katia Bertoldi (Harvard), Rui Huang (UT Austin), Oscar Lopez-Pamies (UIUC), and Stephan Rudykh (MIT)
