Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to the minisymposium:

Computational Methods for Multiscale and Multiphysics Wave Phenomena

at the upcoming 11th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics (USNCCM-11, to be held on July 25-29, 2011 in Minneapolis, MN.

Abstract: Although wave mechanics have been studied for over a century, new and intriguing applications continue to arise in modern engineering problems. The symposium will focus on computational methods for complex wave phenomena encountered in solids. Solids with unconventional properties resulting from their composition, length scale, geometry, and internal architecture and their wave mechanics characteristics will be of interest along with the novel technologies that they inspire. Of particular interest are multiscale wave processes in solids characterized by hierarchical structures, with nested levels of geometric and/or material complexity, as well as multiphysics phenomena due to coupled mechanical, thermal and EM effects. Lastly, waves can be regarded as attractive characterization tools, due to their sensitivity to small-scale structural features, such as microstructures, discontinuities, interphases and defects.  

Targeted areas:

  • Wave methods as tools for characterization of microstructured solids
  • Scattering, attenuation and dispersion of waves in heterogeneous materials
  • Waves in geomaterials and seismic wave processes
  • Wave propagation in acoustic metamaterials 
  • Mechanical-to-electromagnetic wave conversion
  • Wave processes in thermoelasticity


  • Stefano Gonella - University of Minnesota Twin Cities 
  • Massimo Ruzzene - Georgia Tech

Hi, Professor Gonella:

  I am very interested in your topics and I am working on wave propagation in solids.
