Call for Abstracts: "Advances in Computational Methods for Heterogeneous Materials"

Julian J. Rimoli's picture

As part of the 13th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics to be held in San Diego, CA, on July 26-30 2015, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract to the Symposium “Advances in Computational Methods for Heterogeneous Materials”.

Study of the dynamic behavior of heterogeneous media, such as polycrystalline materials, particle reinforced composites and granular media, is a rich and complex endeavor. The broad spectrum of material properties and complex force and dissipative energy pathways in the configuration space corresponding to the structure of the material post a great challenge for the theoretical modeling and numerical simulations of the deformation physics of heterogeneous media under dynamic and quasi-static loading. The objective of this mini-symposium is to bring together researchers from the related fields to discuss recent advances and exchange new ideas on novel computational methods for the prediction of the response of heterogeneous materials at various strain rates and loading conditions. In this respect, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

(a)   Multiscale modeling and simulations of heterogeneous materials
(b)   Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) of polycrystalline structures
(c)   Novel numerical methods, such as cohesive elements, meshfree methods, particle methods, X-FEM, for the prediction of damage evolution and failure in heterogeneous materials
(d)   Multiscale methods for granular media

We would like to invite you, or someone in your group, to submit an abstract.  The deadline for the on-line submission is February 15, 2015. Abstracts can be submitted using the following link:

If you have any question or need any information do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in July!
