On behalf of the Institute for Materials Testing, Materials Science and Strength of Materials (IMWF it is our great pleasure to invite you to the EUROMECH-Colloquium 577 in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Colloquium will concentrate on new ideas and innovations in modeling of different types of metal ceramic composites, including functionally graded materials, as well as on fracture of composites. It aims to bring together experts across the disciplines to discuss new models and new trends in this field.

The topics focus on the following aspects of metal ceramic composites:

  • Micromechanics of deformation and microstructural fracture aspects 
  • Atomistic studies on deformation and fracture 
  • Fracture criteria for prediction of crack propagation
  • Mathematical and computational modeling of cracks
  • Layered metal/ceramic composite materials, multilayer graded structures and graded interfaces

Results of theoretical and numerical work, including experimental studies are likewise welcome.
