Dear friends and colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract to Symposium on Functional Soft Composites - Design, Mechanics, and Manufacturing. This symposium is part of 2019 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition, November 8-14, 2019 Salt Lake City, Utah, US.  The symposium is sponsered by the Compoiste Material technical committee in the Applied Mechanics Division of ASME. 

We are soliciting papers and presentations in the area of functional soft composites, which is recently becoming an emerging field in scientific research and engineering innovation that is distinct from traditional materials and composites, due to their unprecedented potential of large deformation, property tuning, shape changing, and self-adaptivity. By integrating soft matrix with functional ingredients such as stimuli-responsive particles and mechanophores, soft composites could enable advanced material and structural systems with multifunctionalities in the field of soft actuator, soft robotics, flexible electronics, and biomedical engineering.

The development of functional soft composites synergistically integrates design, mechanics, and manufacturing. This symposium will represent the emerging and recent advances in soft composite materials with a focus on the design concept, design method, modeling, simulation, and fabrication, as well as their novel engineering applications across a wide range of engineering fields. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Design concept and methodology of soft composites with novel properties and functionalities
  • Constitutive modeling of soft composite material behavior
  • Advanced manufacturing of soft composites
  • Multiphysics coupling of soft composites and their applications
  • Stimuli-responsive soft composites and their applications

To submit an abstract, please

1.      Go to: https://event.asme.org/IMECE
2.      Select Track 11 (Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids)
3.      Topic area 11-2 (Symposium on Functional Soft Composites - Design, Mechanics, and Manufacturing)

The deadline for abstract submission is February 25, 2019.

Thanks for your support and see you in the beautiful Salt Lake City in November!!
