WCCM 2024: Minisymposium Numerical modelling of composite materials and structures

Call for papers  Dear colleague,  

We warmly invite you to submit an Abstract to the mini symposium: Numerical modelling of Composite Materials and Structures (1004) 

Which is a part of: The 16th World Congress on Computational Mechanics and 4th Pan American Congress on Computational Mechanics which is held between 21-26th July 2024 on Vancouver, Canada. 




Deadline for Abstract submission: January 15th, 2024 


Deadline for Extended Abstract submission (optional): May 31st, 2024 


Papers related to modelling, design and optimization of various types of composite materials and structures are solicited. Modern fibre reinforced composite laminates, sandwich panels, auxetics, novel metamaterials, and nanocomposite materials will be part of the mini-symposium. Traditional composite materials including masonry or concrete are also included in the topics of the symposium.Papers on different failure types, on mechanical behaviour of structures and on material properties are welcomed. Different constitutive descriptions, including damage mechanics, plasticity, contact mechanics, etc. as well as multi-scale and homogenization methods, are encouraged. Load types include but are not limited to statics and dynamics, thermal effects and acoustic applications. Modern data-driven and physics-informed methods including machine learning solutions, which are able to exploit experimental data, are also included in the topics of the symposium.



Please inform suitably qualified colleagues and co-workers in your group.



For any queries, please contact Professor Georgios Stavroulakis or Dr. Georgios Drosopoulos (
