Short Course on Mechanics of Foams

A short course on the “Mechanics of Liquid and Solid Foams” will be offered at CISM, the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences in Udine, Italy, 13-17 July 2015 (see brochure attached).

The course will focus on relationships between the cellular microstructure and nonlinear mechanical behavior of liquid and solid foams, and foam-like biological and synthetic materials. Theoretical models, experimental methods, and numerical simulations will be presented. The course is aimed at PhD students, postdocs, and researchers in academia and industry.

The speakers are:

Stavros Gaitanaros, MIT, USA
Sascha Hilgenfeldt, University of Illinois, USA
Reinhard Höhler, Pierre and Marie Curie University and Université Paris-Est, France
Andrew Kraynik, Sandia National Laboratories, USA (retired), University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany
Stelios Kyriakides, University of Texas at Austin, USA
Patrick Onck, University of Groningen, The Netherlands
