Symposium on "Behavior and Mechanics of Active Materials and Structures" at SES 2015 in Texas A&M

Dear Colleagues:

Please, consider to attend the symposium entitled "Behavior and Mechanics of Active Materials & Structures" organized for the occasion of the 52nd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES). The SES meeting will be held at Texas A&M University, October 26 - 28, 2015 (

This symposium aims to bring together researchers from the materials science and mechanics communities in an effort to create a synergism of active materials development, experimental results and theoretical modeling and simulation methods on the behavior and mechanics of active materials, emphasizing phase transforming materials. The material systems considered can be either bulk structural active materials or thin films, monolithic or composites with actuation or sensing characteristics and operating under normal or extreme thermomechanical or chemical environments. Related issues to be addressed are an improved understanding of properties, modeling methodologies, enhancement of performance, design and optimization of materials and micro-rstructures and behaviors such as fatigue and fracture. 

We look forward to having you join us!
