Symposium on "Constitutive Modeling of Amorphous and Particulate Systems" at USNCTAM 2018

David Henann's picture

We encourage you to contribute an abstract to the symposium "Constitutive Modeling of Amorphous and Particulate Systems" (Symposium 322) at the 18th U.S. National Congress for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNCTAM) to be held at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, June 4-9, 2018. The symposium description may be found below. For further details and to submit an abstract, please see the meeting website.

The abstract submission deadline is November 10, 2017.

It would be great to see you there!

Symposium description: Amorphous, particulate systems – such as granular materials, slurries, pastes, dense suspensions, emulsions, foams, colloids, and glasses – appear frequently in engineering as well as in everyday life. When deformed, these materials can display phenomena that challenge the formulation of constitutive models – e.g., shear banding and localization, size-effects and nonlocality, history effects and hysteresis, rate-dependence, and pore-fluid effects. This symposium will bring together researchers working towards more predictive constitutive models for these material systems. Topics of interest include plasticity theories, rheology, internal state variable based modeling, homogenization approaches, as well as discrete modeling and experiments that inform constitutive models.
