The 8th edition of the International Conference on Computational Methods for Coupled Problems in Science and Engineering (COUPLED PROBLEMS 2019) will be organised on 3-5 June 2019 in Sitges, a beautiful village located in the southern Mediterranean coast of Barcelona in Spain.
The previous seven editions of this conference were held on the islands of Santorini (Greece) on 25-28 May 2005, Ibiza (Spain) on 21-23 May 2007, Ischia (Italy) on 8-11 June 2009, Kos (Greece) on 20-22 June 2011, Ibiza (Spain) on June 17 – 19 June 2013, San Servolo, Venice, Italy on May 18 - 20 2015, and on Rhodes Island, Greece on June 12 - 14 2017.
The objectives of COUPLED PROBLEMS 2019 are to present and discuss state of the art, mathematical models, numerical methods and computational techniques for solving coupling problems o f multidisciplinary character in science and engineering. The conference goal is to make step forward in the formulation and solution of real life problems with a multidisciplinary vision, accounting for all the complex couplings involved in the physical description of the problem.
The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide.
The conference topics will include (the list is not exhaustive):
Coupled solution strategies
Loose and strong coupling schemes
Mathematical formulation of multidisciplinary problems
Numerical Methods for Coupled Problems: Finite difference, Finite elements, Finite volume, Meshless methods, Particle methods, etc.
Optimum design in multi-disciplinary problems
Parallel and Real Time computational techniques
Applications in science and engineering: Bio-medicine, Computational design of functional materials, Design Topology, Optimization and Control, Electro-magnetic-dynamics, Fluid-structure-interaction, Geomechanics, High performance computing, Multiphysics Problems, Multiscale Problems, Thermo-mechanical problems, etc.
