  • Thematic Workshop
    "Computational challenges for mechanical simulations based on digital image data"
    Dec. 6-7, 2017. Karlsruhe, Germany
    The simulation of microstructured solids in the context of mechanical multiscale problems remains a challenging field with many questions being unanswered. Particularly, the reduction of the computational cost (cpu time and memory) while limiting numerical artifacts induced by the employed discretization methods is sought after. The thematic workshop aims at developing, within a familiar atmosphere, discussions and interaction. Therefore, a scientific program including not only presentations but dedicated time slots for small group discussions is anticipated.

  • Minisymposium - 7th GACM Colloquium on Computational Mechanics for Young Scientists from Academia and Industry, October 11-13, 2017, Stuttgart, Germany
    (www.gacm2017.uni-stuttgart.de)

    The IRTG 1627 ViVaCE “Virtual Materials and their Validation” and the GRK 2078 “Integrated engineering of continuous-discontinuous long fiber reinforced polymer structures” will be organizing the Minisymposia:

    MS18: Virtual Analysis and Design of New Materials
    Polymers, composite materials and their combination with metals are increasingly applied in various engineering application fields due to their specific material properties and their resource-efficient design possibilities. The material behavior of these materials is highly influenced by the material composition and the manufacturing process, leading to a non-homogeneous microstructure. Thus, predictive computational engineering methods need to account for this heterogeneous microstructure. The aim of this Mini-Symposium is to present holistic integrated simulation approaches in the fields of fluid mechanic and phase field simulations, structure optimization, as well as micromechanical simulations and homogenization methods. Therefore, the presented material models are associated with multiscale and Multiphysics modeling and constitutive modeling with respect to thermomechanical, kinetic (phase field), interface, damage or dynamic failure approaches.
