Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session at the 16th European Mechanics of Materials Conference (EMMC16) to be held in Nantes, March 26th-28th, 2018:

S10: Coupled Problems in Material Mechanics 

A short description of the session topics is provided below. 

The deadline for submitting an abstract is September 30, 2017.

Please refer to the conference website for details:

We look forward to meeting you in Nantes.

Session description:

A large number of material mechanics problems require a multiphysics approach to correctly describe the material response at the length scale of interest. At a continuum level, this involves the formulation of complex multi-field constitutive models as well as efficient numerical procedures for solving coupled Boundary Value Problems. In addition, model identification based on experimental measurements or simulation results at a lower scale is often challenging. The aim of this session is to gather scientists working across a variety of material systems to share recent advances in the modelling and simulation of coupled problems in mechanics. Experimental approaches in direct relation with model identification and validation are also welcome.

Topics of interest include:

  • Thermo-mechanical, electro-mechanical, or magneto-mechanical couplings;
  • Mass transport and chemical reactions in solids;
  • Multiphysics phenomena in soft active materials, including elastomers, gels and biological tissues;
  • Biomechanical couplings;
  • Coupled-field problems in heterogeneous media;
  • Scale bridging approaches;
  • Computational approaches for coupled, multi-field problems.
