Call for abstract submission at SES 2020: Mechanics and Physics of Active Materials and Systems [deadline March 17, 2020]

Dear Colleagues:

We would like to cordially invite you to attend the symposium entitled "Mechanics and Physics of Active Materials and Systems" organized under track "Frontiers in Mechanics of Materials" in the Society of Engineering Science (SES) 57th Annual Technical Meeting conference. The conference will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, September 28–30, 2020 (https://ccaps.umn.edu/SES).

The topic of this symposium is broad, from a scientific understanding of the processes of deformation and mechanical failure, to the structural and functional effectiveness and reliability of active materials in engineering applications. The aim is to offer a platform for scientists and engineers to present and discuss experimental, modeling, and simulation research on the underlying physical mechanisms that govern the deformation response and failure in such materials, the connections between these processes, as well as on the design and performance evaluation of related structures. Both hard and soft active materials are considered, such as thermomechanical and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, liquid crystal elastomers, magnetorheological elastomers, and any other type of material or system that responds to a non-mechanical stimulus. Research presentations from both academia and industry are welcome.

We look forward to having you join us!

The deadline for abstracts is March 17, 2020.

Organizers:

Theocharis Baxevanis     (tbaxevanis@uh.edu)       University of Houston

Dimitris C. Lagoudas      (lagoudas@tamu.edu)      Texas A&M University

Ibrahim Karaman           (ikaraman@tamu.edu)     Texas A&M University
