Conference Announcements

CFRAC-2019

6th edition of International Conference on Computational Modeling of Fracture and Failure of Materials and Structures (CFRAC 2019)

Wed, 12 Jun 2019 – Fri, 14 Jun 2019

The aim of CFRAC 2019 is to gather academic researchers and industrial partners involved in development and application of numerical procedures for fracture and failure simulation of materials and structures, in an effort to facilitate the exchange of ideas in topics of mutual interest and to serve as a platform for establishing links among research groups in Europe and worldwide.

 

Designers of engineering structures must answer to ever-increasing requests on performance in terms of safety, reliability, durability, low cost and low energy consumption. As new materials and new applications arise, traditional design rules and conventional testing methods become insufficient or inapplicable, which strengthens the role of computational methods in the design process. Numerical tools can accelerate the development of new products and their optimization.

 

The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide.

The conference topics will include (the list is not exhaustive):

Algorithms for crack propagation and evolving discontinuities

Continuum damage mechanics

Coupled experimental-computational identification

Ductile and large deformation fracture

Dynamic fracture

Failure mechanisms in forming processes

Finite elements with embedded strong discontinuities

Fracture of composites

Fracture of nanostructures

Fragmentation

Transition from damage to fracture
