International Workshop on Computational and Experimental Mechanics of Advanced Materials

International Workshop on Computational and Experimental Mechanics of Advanced Materials

2/16/2013
Welcome to International Workshop on Computational and Experimental Mechanics of Advanced Materials (CEMAM).
CEMAM will take place at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia during July 1-3, 2013.
 
The event will be focused on the mechanics of solids and structures with applications to composite materials. The main themes of this workshop will be:
  • Multiscale experimental and computational approaches for design (multiscale computational techniques, model coupling, non-local models, hierarchical approaches, homogenization, multiscale strategies for optimizing material formulations, hybrid nano/micro/meso scale materials and multifunctional composites).
  • Inverse problems for non-destructive control and health monitoring of composite structures (2D/3D digital image correlation-based identification, identification techniques for interfaces in joints/laminates, monitoring techniques for composite structures, impedance based tomography).
  • Durability of materials and structures (aging of polymer composites under various environments, aging problems for structures, multi-physics prediction tools).
Organizers:
Prof. Gilles Lubineau, COHMAS Laboratory, PSE division, KAUST, Saudi Arabia
Prof. Glaucio Paulino, Civil & Env. Eng. Department, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), USA
Prof. Marco Alfano, Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Calabria, Italy
