Minisymposium 'MS 13: Mechanics of Soft Materials and Structures' at EMI 2015 at Stanford University

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the minisymposium entitled 'MS 13: Mechanics of Soft Materials and Structures', which we are organizing as part of the EMI 2015 Conference (Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference) to be held in Stanford, United States, June 16-19 2015.

initial particle distribution in SPH

I wonder how important the initial set up for a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics simulation is. Is the initial particle distribution somehow significant for the final result? How to control particle density and distribution along problem domain? What are the important factors inherent to the initial set up? Having control over the initial set up is going against the philosophy of this method?

Discussion of fracture paper #9

Dear Reader, 

I recently took over as the ESIS blog editor. Being the second in this baton relay, I will do my best to live up to the good reader expectations that has been established by my precursor, who is also one of the instigators of the blog, Wolfgang Brock. 

Yield stress fluid flows

A Virtual Special Issue of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics devoted to yield stress fluid flows has just been released. With this first Virtual Special Issue of the journal we inaugurate a practice, which we plan to make regular, of highlighting developments on a particular subject of relevance in order to guide and encourage research in the field.
