Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following minisymposium at the Third International Conference on Damage Mechanics (ICDM3) to be held in Shanghai, China, July 4-6th, 2018:

MS5: Computational modeling of damage and failure in solids and structures

organised by Jian-Ying Wu (South China University of Technology), Phu Nguyen (Monash University) and Zhenjun Yang (Zhejiang University). The topics are:

  • Discrete crack approaches such as zero-thickness interface elements, enriched finite element method with nodal (XFEM/GFEM) or elemental enrichments (E-FEM);
  • Smeared crack approaches implemented in novel numerical contexts, e.g., mixed finite elements, mesh-free method, discontinuous Galerkin method, isogeometric analysis, virtual elements, scaled boundary finite elements, etc.;
  • Regularized crack approaches such as phase-field models, thick level-set method, variational approaches to damage and fracture, nonlocal and gradient-enhanced models, and peridynamic models;
  • Combined continuous and discontinuous approaches that characterize the entire failure process from the initial diffuse stage to the final fully localized failure;
  • Static and dynamic fracture; brittle and ductile fracture; shock, impact and fragmentation;
  • Multi-scale and stochastic analysis of fracture such as computational homogenization (FE2), bridging domain method, etc.
  • Experimental validation of numerical methods for damage and fracture; inverse analysis and model calibration.

The premilinary deadline for submitting an abstract is October 20, 2017.

Please refer to the conference website for details:

We look forward to meeting you in Shanghai.
