Abstract Submission Deadline - 20th March

Mechanics of Materials and Structures

This field of study emphasizes theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches that contribute to a fundamental understanding of and new insight into the properties and behavior of materials and structures. General areas of interest include nano- and micro-scale solid mechanics, analysis and design of lightweight structures and materials, smart structures, uncertainty quantification and propagation, structural synthesis and optimization, and machine learning applications in materials design and modeling. The emphasis of the research efforts is on predicting and enhancing stiffness, shape-change, stability, toughness, damage-tolerance, longevity, optimal life-cycle costs, and self-adaptivity. Specific areas of focus include:

• Active Materials

• Advanced Manufacturing

• Composites

• Defect Formation/Propagation

• Deformation and Failure

• Machine Learning

• Morphing Structures

• Nanoscale Mechanics

• Uncertainty Quantification
