C. Linder, Stanford University
S. Sun, Columbia University
C. Di Leo, Georgia Institute of Technology

Symposium Description:

This symposium is focused on recent research regarding computational modeling related to problems of interest to the mechanics of materials community that involve multi-physics or multiple simultaneous physical phenomena. Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts in the following (or related) topics: multiphysics coupling; homogenization and concurrent methods; fluid-structure interaction; electro- and magneto-mechanics; geomechanics and/or poromechanics; diffusion and mass transport; hydraulically and/or thermally induced fracturing; failure and instabilities via computational methods.
