CISM course on electro-magneto-mechanics, Udine Italy, June 6-10, 2022

Dear Colleagues, I would like to bring to your attention a CISM course on “Electro- and magneto-mechanics of soft solids: experiments, modeling and instabilities” that is planned to take place on June 6-10, 2022 at Udine, Italy. The School is addressed to doctoral students, post-docs and early career researchers with interest in active soft materials.'s picture

3rd International Summer School on Fatigue and Damage Mechanics of Composite Materials

After the first two successful editions in 2015 and 2019, with the
enthusiastic participation of students and young researchers from all over the world, the third
edition of the international Summer School on Fatigue and Damage Mechanics of Composites
will be held in Vicenza (Italy) from the 4th to the 8th of July 2022. The venue is the Department
of Management and Engineering, campus of the University of Padova in Vicenza. The School has
already received the patronage of ESCM (the European Society for Composite Materials), AIAS
(the Italian Society for Mechanical Design), Assocompositi (the Italian Association of Composite
Industries) and IGF (the Italian Group of Fracture).
The School aims at providing young scientists and engineers both from Academia and Industry
with the unique opportunity to meet and learn from leading international experts about
advances in the fatigue and damage mechanics of polymer-based composite materials.
Based on the experience and the feedback received after the first editions, the format will be
improved with more tailored theoretical sections, hands-on activities and the presentation of
industrial application cases provided by experts of leading worldwide companies. Particular
attention will be always devoted to the understanding of damage mechanisms and the paths to
incorporate them into predictive models.
During the five-day program, senior researchers and industry representatives will provide
lectures on experimental techniques for damage investigations, damage evolution under
fatigue, analytical and numerical damage modelling, structural health monitoring and examples
of design against damage in advanced industrial applications.

Teaching Dynamics: Particles in Equivalent Universes

If you have ever had to study and teach classical mechanics, then one of the challenges is to explain the equivalences of distinct formulations of the equations of motion for discrete mechanical systems. It is not transparent, particularly in the presence of constraints, how the Newton-Euler equations, Lagrange’s equations, Gibbs-Appell equations, Maggi's equations, Kane’s equations, Boltzmann-Hamel equations, and several other fomulations, are equivalent.
