EUROMECH Colloquium 540
Advanced Modelling of Wave Propagation in Solids
The EUROMECH Colloquium 540 aims to bring together engineers and scientists with interest in modelling of wave propagation in solids. The Colloquium will concentrate on topics related to effects of linear and non-linear waves in solids, to solitary waves, to strongly dispersive wave propagation in inhomogeneous solids and to waves in materials with microstructures, etc. Attention will also be devoted to up-to-date formulations of non-linear constitutive equations in wave propagation problems, thermomechanical couplings, finite strains, strain rate effects, viscoplasticity, damage, phase transformations, and to descriptions of material response under complex thermomechanical loading.
The wave propagation modelling is based on analytical and numerical methods both having their inherent scopes of validity that has to be subjected to verification analysis. The recent advances and properties of numerical approaches and strategies should also be discussed. The main purpose of the Colloquium is to discuss novel and recent methods of wave propagation modelling and to consider expected credibility of results especially in cases when comparison with those of experiment is not available.
Theoretical, computational as well as experimental contributions on the wave propagation are welcome. Reporting about projects not brought to their final states is appreciated, since an important objective of the meeting is to stimulate and assist current research in wave propagation problems in solids.
With respect to requirements of European Mechanics Society, no parallel sessions should be held. For that reason, the technical programme of the three-day long Colloquium will be restricted. Furthermore, the poster session will be also organized. Authors presenting oral contributions will be selected by the review process carried out the scientific and organizing committees. Two page long abstracts should be submitted as to reach organizers by the end of February 2012. Abstracts will be reviewed by ad hoc Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance will be provided by April 15, 2012.
EUROMECH Colloquium 540 is organised under the auspices of the EUROMECH Council, the Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., the Centre for Nonlinear Studies, Institute of Cybernetics at Tallinn University of Technology, the Czech Society for Mechanics and the Mayor of Prague Prof. Bohuslav Svoboda.
