Summer School on Advances in Finite Element Methods

The Summer School on Advances in Finite Element Methods will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 14-18 Jan 2013.
The website contains details such as registration, accommodation, lecturers and the schedule. 

The objective of this summer school is first, to provide the necessary background in the mathematics of finite elements, and second, to build on this background by addressing the topics of adaptivity and discontinuous Galerkin methods.

What would you choose as the Top 5 Equations? Top 10?

Equations are of central importance in all of science and engineering, but especially so in mechanics.

Even leaving aside algebraic equations, handbooks on PDEs alone list hundreds of equations. However, a few of these do stand out, either because they encapsulate some fundamental aspect of physics/science/engg., or because they serve as simpler prototypes for more complex situtations, or simply because they are so complex as to be fascinating by themselves. There might be other considerations too... But the fact is, some equations really do stand out as compared to others.

How do ductile materials fail?

This is a review on ductile fracture committed to the Advances in Applied Mechanics (Vol 44). Part of the review has an educational purpose and, as such, is intended for advanced undergraduates and starting graduate students. The other part is an account of recent research conducted in the field.

Though quite long, the review is by no means exhaustive. As noted in the discussion, many valuable contributions to this field have been left out. The focus was laid on micromechanics-based approaches to connect to microstructural aspects in engineering materials.
