CISM Advanced School "Mechanics of strain gradient materials"

A one-week CISM Advanced School on "Mechanics of strain gradient materials", coordinated by Albrecht Bertram and Samuel Forest, will take place in Udine, Italy, next May 14th-18th.

The course will cover elastic and plastic strain gradient constitutive models utilised to predict size-dependent mechanical behaviours, with focus on:
• experimental findings for size effects
• balance laws and boundary conditions for strain gradient materials
• the linear theory of elasticity and plasticity of strain gradient materials of arbitrary order
• the application to crystal plasticity
• the finite strain gradient theory for large deformations
• the application of strain gradient models to fracture and damage and to micro-to-macro transitions (media with microstructure).

Lecturers are: Albrecht Bertram (University of Magdeburg, Germany), Samuel Forest (Mines ParisTech, Evry, France), Wolfgang H. Mueller (Technical University of Berlin, Germany), Christian F. Niordson (Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark), Pierre Seppecher (University of Toulon, France),  Lorenzo Bardella (University of Brescia, Italy).

The Advanced School is especially addressed to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in mechancis, applied mathematics, and materials science.
