Dear Colleagues

I would like to make you aware of a computational solid mechanics minisymposium being organized for the 2016 EMI-PMC conference at Vanderbilt University, May 22-25, 2016:

MS 15: Computational Methods and Applications for Solid and Structural Mechanics 

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

The aim of this minisymposium is to provide a forum for discussing the novel computational methods and applications that pertain to solid and structural mechanics problems. This minisymposium 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 and computational methods for contact, fracture, interface modeling and other important engineering problems, (b) Multiscale modeling and methods for heterogeneous materials including composites, concrete, wood, and others, (c) Multiscale modeling and methods for structural mechanics problems, (d) Computational methods for time dependent structural and material response (collapse, creep, fatigue, etc.), (e) Modeling of multiphysics phenomena (e.g., coupling of mechanics with electromagnetic, chemical, or transport effects), (f) Solution techniques, error estimation, algorithmic analysis and convergence studies in computational mechanics. 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
