EUROMECH Colloquium 540

OBJECTIVES

The EUROMECH Colloquium 540 aims to bring together engineers and scientists with interest in modelling of wave propagation in solids. Wave phenomena play important role in various scientific fields such as continuum mechanics, material science, and physics. The reliable modelling of wave propagation in solids is of utmost importance in industry, material science, security, in defense – its development is of theoretical and experimental interests as well.

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. To guarantee the accuracy and stability of numerical approaches, the proper understanding of methods, and ways leading to suppressing artifacts and parasitic effects, are essential. Among these are size effects, dispersion, attenuation, appearance of spurious modes, evanescent waves, etc.

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.

Research groups should present their views of existing modelling methods, propose new approaches, and discuss important results obtained from their analyses and experimental tests. Talks on efficient and reliable computational procedures necessary for processing wave propagation problems are encouraged. 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.
