The seminar will focus on various aspects of microstructures in solid mechanics, material science and applied mathematics:
- Modeling materials with microstructure (plasticity, damage, phase transitions, electro-magneto-mechanics, …)
- Experimental results on the formation and evolution of microstructure (lamination, phase transformation, …)
- Mathematical analysis, variational formulations, non-convex problems, relaxation methods
- Multiscale methods and computational tools for the determination of effective properties of microheterogeneous materials0
The seminar gives the opportunity to discuss and to compare different approaches to the above fields. It provides a platform for the interaction among young and established researchers in solid mechanics, mathematics, and material science.
The Organizing Committee owes gratitude to Fondazione CR Firenze for supporting the Seminar.
