Invitation for Abstracts: Computational Mechanics Symposium at EMI 2015 (Stanford)

Dear Colleagues

I would like to make you aware of a computational solid mechanics minisymposium being organized for the 2015 EMI conference at Stanford University, June 16-19, 2015:

MS 41: Computational Methods and Applications for Solid and Structural Mechanics 

Caglar Oskay*, Vanderbilt University, USA 
Haim Waisman, Columbia University, USA 
Ertugrul Taciroglu, University of California Los Angeles, USA 
Armando Duarte, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA 
Timothy Truster, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA 

The aim of this MS is to provide a forum for discussing the novel computational methods and applications that pertain to solid and structural mechanics problems. This MS seeks to bring together students, academicians, and professionals working on computational solid and structural mechanics. In particular, contributions on the following topics are of significant interest: (a) novel discretization techniques for modeling cracks and discontinuities (e.g., XFEM/GFEM, meshless methods, discrete elements, cohesive elements, peridynamics and others), (b) reliable computational damage mechanics formulations (e.g., nonlocal methods, gradient methods, other regularization techniques); (c) multiscale modeling and methods for heterogeneous materials including composites, concrete, wood, and others; (d) computational methods for modeling inelastic material behavior (creep, fatigue, plasticity, etc.); (e) multiscale modeling and methods for structural mechanics problems; (f) modeling of multiphysics phenomena (e.g., environment induced material degradation, coupling between mechanics and electromagnetic effects, mechanics and transport phenomena, coupling between mechanics and chemistry, and others). This MS is sponsored by the EMI Computational Mechanics Committee. 

I look forward to your submission and seeing you at the conference,

Best regards,

Tim Truster
