ASME 2017 IMECE: Fatigue and Fracture of Active Materials–Call for abstracts
Please, consider to attend the symposium entitled "Fatigue and Fracture of Active Materials" organized under track "Mechanics of Solids, Structures, and Fluids" in the International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) ASME 2017 conference. The conference will be held in Tampa, Florida, November 6–9, 2017 (https://www.asme.org/events/imece).
The broad topic of this symposium is the structural and functional reliability and effectiveness of active materials in engineering applications. The aim is to offer a platform for scientists and engineers to present and discuss experimental, modeling, and simulation research on the mechanisms and mechanics of the cyclic deterioration and failure of such materials. Piezoelectric ceramics, thermomechanical and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, magnetorheological elastomers, and any other type of monolithic or composite material exhibiting multi-field coupling in bulk or thin-film are considered. Research presentations from both academia and industry are welcome.
We look forward to having you join us!
The opening talk will be given by Hüseyin Sehitoglu, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The deadline for abstracts is March 6, 2017.
Theocharis Baxevanis, University of Houston
