Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your relevant work to a mini-symposium on “Damage And Thermo-Chemo-Mechanical Coupling In Polymers” (full description below) at the 2020 Society of Engineering Science. SES 2020 will be held at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, September 28-30th.

The abstract submission deadline is March 17th, 2020. You can find us under Track 5. https://ccaps.umn.edu/SES/abstract-submission

 

Sincerely,

Maryam Shakiba, Virginia Tech, mshakiba@vt.edu

Symposium scope

The symposium aims to cover a broad range of topics related to research in the mechanics and multi-physics of polymers, with an emphasis on damage and recovery. Polymers are continuously exposed to detrimental environmental conditions. Environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, magnetic field, UV exposure, and chemicals couple to mechanical loadings to degrade the properties of the polymers and reduce their lifetime. At the same time, advanced and responsive materials are being designed to harvest a smart response from the coupling of external stimuli and mechanical loading. Therefore, damage and thermo-chemo-mechanical modeling of polymers are imperative to understanding such materials. Physics-based and microstructure-based models are necessary to predict the highly nonlinear responses of this class of materials. Topics of interest include but are not limited to fundamental mechanics and microstructure-based modeling of polymers; experiments and modeling of novel multifunctional polymers; and polymer design and processing.

 

The objective of this symposium is to provide a platform for researchers from academia, industry and national labs to present, discuss and exchange the latest development in theoretical, computational, and experimental studies on multi-physics modeling of advanced polymeric materials. The mini-symposium seeks to encourage future collaboration between the attendees.
