Dear all,

 

We would like to draw your attention to the following minsiymposium on multiscale modeling of fracture in quasibrittle solids that will be taking place as part of USNCCM 13 to be held at San Diego [July 26-30]. For those who are interested in submitting an abstract, the deadline is Feb 15th. Please feel free to pass this announcemnts to your colleagues or students whom you think may be interested. We are looking forward to seeing you there either in the audience or giving a talk!

Best Wishes,

 

Ahmed Elbanna (UIUC) and Robert Haber (UIUC)

Fracture is a fascinating, nonlinear and often dynamic, phenomenon occurring on many scales. In many systems, small-scale perturbations may lead to large scale system fragilities and catastrophic fractures. Understanding the underpinnings of material response at the microscale, including origins of friction and adhesion, and their implications for fracture at macro scale is thus of vital importance to many engineering, biological, and geophysical applications. This minisymposium solicits contributions in all fields related to multiscale physics and computational modeling relevant to fracture and fragmentation processes in quasi-brittle solids. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to: (a) constitutive modeling appropriate for modeling friction and adhesion at the microscale, (c) thermodynamics based models for bulk damage and its rate dependence, and (d) theoretical analysis of crack nucleation and initiation and (e) computational modeling of cohesive fracture.
