Dear Colleagues:

18th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM2018) – Jointly Organized with the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics will be held in Chicago, Illinois, June 5th - June 9th, 2018 (

As a part of this meeting, we are organizing a mini-symposium to address recent advances in Modeling and Design of Materials with Coupled Physics.


Functional materials is a rapidly growing field of study in mechanics community. The multiphysics nature of functional materials poses multiple challenges in modeling and engineering architectured materials with new functionalities. Recent advances in material manufacturing (such as 3D printing and additive manufacturing) open an exciting opportunity to realize and test pre-designed materials with desirable functionalities. This session aims to bring together experts in modeling, simulations, manufacturing and experimentations in the field of functional materials to present and discuss recent advances. 

Topics of particular interest include (but not limited to)

• Electroactive and magnetoactive materials

• Thermoelectric materials

• 3D woven materials

• Shape-memory and light-sensitive polymers

• Functionally graded materials

• Design of microstructured and functional materials

• 3D printing and additive manufacturing

• Computational homogenization and multiscale modeling

• Design and modeling of metamaterials


We cordially invite you to submit your abstract for this mini-symposium. To submit an abstract, please visit the congress website at


The deadline for abstract submission is November 10, 2017. 

We are looking forward to your presentations at this mini-symposium.

With our best regards,

Stephan Rudykh, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

Sergey Kuznetsov, North Carolina State University
