24th International Workshop on Computational Mechanics of Materials (IWCMM 24) in Madrid, Spain, on October 1st-3rd 2014

The abstract submission for the 24th International Workshop on
Computational Mechanics of Materials (IWCMM 24) in Madrid, Spain, on
October 1st-3rd, 2014 is now opened. The deadline for abstract
submission is June 15th, 2014.

The workshop is intended to cover all aspects of modeling and
simulations of the mechanical behavior at different length and time
scales. The materials of interest range from traditional materials such
as metals, alloys, polymers and composites to advanced and emerging
materials and bio-materials.

Doing Topology Optimization Explicitly and Geometrically - A New Moving Morphable Components Based Framework

    Structural topology optimization, which aims at placing available material within a prescribed design domain appropriately in order to achieve optimized structural performances, has received considerable research attention since the pioneering work of Bendsoe and Kikuchi. Many approaches have been proposed for structural topology optimization and it now has been extended to a wide range of physical disciplines such as acoustics, electromagnetics and optics.
