A mini-symposium in 7thWCCM: "ADVANCES AND APPLICATIONS OF COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN IMPACT ENGINEERING"

The aim of the “Advances and Applications of Computational Methods in Impact Engineering” mini-symposium is to recognize the increasing role of computation in Impact Engineering. It is now established that computational tools are indispensable to augment experimental techniques for the analysis of complex systems under dynamic loading. Many new computational techniques are currently being developed and new applications in the fields of impact and shock loadings are emerging. This mini-symposium will bring together engineers and scientists working in the area of Computational Impact Engineering.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) the following:

* Response of Structures to dynamic and explosive type loading
* Constitutive modeling and homogenization methods for structures under dynamic loading
* Development of constitutive models for the dynamic response of soft tissue
* Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction
* Advances in Computational Impact Engineering
* Dynamic buckling and post-buckling analysis under impact
* Failure mechanisms of structures under impact loading
* Computation-assisted design optimization of crashworthiness structures
* Crash Safety
