PACAM XIII - Modeling and Characterization of Ductile Failure

Ravi-Chandar's picture

Dear Colleagues,

The Thirteenth
Pan-American Congress of Applied Mechanics (PACAM XIII) will be held in
Houston, TX, USA. The conference dates are May 22-24th, 2013.

I am organizing a track
on ductile failure; this is an important area of current interest with
significant experimental, analytical and computational effort devoted to it. I invite
you to submit an abstract for presentation in this track at the Congress, and hope
that we will have significant exchanges on this problem. The deadline for the
submission of the abstract is February 15, 2013. The conference abstract
submission site and schedule are available at
Please submit your abstract to Track 12 Modeling and
Characterization of Ductile Failure in Materials

The event is organized
under the auspices of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM) and is supported
by National Science Foundation (NSF).This conference was traditionally held
bi-annually in January, in a Latin American, or, Caribbean country. Previous
PACAMs attracted significant participation from around the world. See, for
This is the first time that PACAM will be held in North America and in May and
we will make this an annual meeting.

I hope you will be able to participate in this symposium and look forward to seeing
you in Houston in May.

Best wishes,
