  • European Advanced Summer School:Computational Micromechanics

    European Advanced Summer School

    Frontiers for Computational Micromechanics in Industrial and
    Engineering Materials

    August 24th to September 1st, 2000

    Funded by the European Commission under the TMR Programme

    The summer school is the second in a series of summer schools
    on the topic of computational micromechancis to be held at NUI,
    Galway. The first summer school was held in July of 1998. It was a
    great success and was enjoyed by all. There were 45 participants
    from 11 European countries and 9 expert lecturers from 5 European
    countries and the USA. The second summer school promises to
    be equally as stimulating and enjoyable. It will build on the same
    basic theme to include the most recent cutting edge and
    developments and novel applications.

    COMPUTATIONAL MICROMECHANICS
    is concerned with modelling materials at
    the microstructural level, allowing explicit representation of
    microstructural features such as second phase or reinforcing
    particles, voids, microcracks, grain boundaries and crystal
    structure, which gives great insight into the physical mechanical
    processes that occur in materials during forming or while in service,
    and also providing the Micro-Macro link to understand and predict
    overall mechanical behaviour.

    SCOPE OF SUMMER SCHOOL

    The Summer School is at an advanced level and is designed for
    post-doctoral researchers, graduate students, research engineers
    and academics who have a good basic knowledge of continuum
    mechanics and materials science. The focus will be on
    applications to high performance industrial materials such as
    steels, hard metals, superalloys, ceramics, MMCs and
    intermetallics. In addition, applications in the exciting new areas of
    biomechanics and biomaterials will be discussed.

    - Principles of continuum mechanics: small deformations
    and finite deformations, computational methods, finite element
    methods, solution algorithms, software codes, parameter
    identification,introduction to micromechancis and overview of
    current applications.
    - Micromechanical models for materials with inhomogeneous
    microstructures: multiphase materials, metal-ceramic
    composites,
    periodic cell modelling, embedding methods, mean field methods,
    homogenisation, bounding, multi-scale methods.
    - Constitutive laws: elasticity, plasticity, crystallographic
    plasticity, single crystal and polycrystal deformation, connection
    to dislocation and atomisitc level modelling, strain gradient
    methods.
    - Microscale fracture: void nucleation, growth and coalesence,
    interfacial fracture, stress fields, J-Integral.
    - Applications in fatigue and cyclic loading.
    - Applications in biomechanics and biomaterials.

    The instruction will be given by a group of internationally known
    experts. The delivery will combine lecture/discussion sessions with
    computer demonstration sessions allowing practical exploration of
    the material covered in the lectures.

    Some of the international experts who will give the instruction are:

    Prof. Siegfried Schmauder (MPA, Stuttgart, Germany)

    Dr. Helmut Boehm (Technical University of Vienna, Austria)

    Dr. Michel Bornert (LMS - Ecole Polytechnique, France)

    Dr. Noel O'Dowd (Imperial College of Science, Technology and
    Medicine, London, UK)

    Dr. Esteban Busso (Imperial College of Science, Technology and
    Medicine, London, UK)

    Mr. Ralf Mohrmann (Fraunhofer Institut Fuer Werkstoffmechanik,
    Freiburg, Germany)

    Dr. Peter McHugh (National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland)

    STRUCTURE OF SUMMER SCHOOL

    August 24 and 25 Lecture and demonstration sessions
    August 26 and 27 Group activites and informal discussion

    August 28, 29 and 30 Lecture and demonstration sessions
    August 31 and September 1 Participation at Workshop IWCMM10

    The language of the Summer School will be English. Some
    familiarity with finite element packages, especially ABAQUS,
    would be beneficial. Notes on all sessions will be distributed to the
    participants during the Summer School.

    Summer school participants will attend the IWCMM10 workshop on
    August 31 and September 1. Here the participants will see a
    wide range of applications and uses for computational
    micromechancis and computational methods in general. In a
    special session of this workshop they will be expected to make a
    presentation of their own work (oral or poster) and their use of (or
    plans for use of) computational methods. This will be extremely
    valuable to participants for the generation of discussion on
    problems they wish to solve and for obtaining feedback from other
    participants and the visiting experts.

    A tour in the senic Connemara area in the west of Ireland is
    planned for August 26 or 27.

    COSTS AND FUNDING FOR SUMMER SCHOOL
    (which includes participation in IWCMM10)

    There is a registration fee of IRP 200 (Irish punts). Accommodation
    and meal costs are not included in the registration fee. Accomodation
    is available on campus at Corrib Village at the rate of IRP 26.50 per
    person per night for ensuite B&B. Meals and coffee breaks will be
    provided during the Summer School (except Saturday 26th and
    Sunday 27th of August) for a total cost of IRP 220. Funding is
    available to attend the Summer School from the European
    Commission for Young Researchers: those under 35 years of age
    whose nationality and place of work is the European Union or the
    Associated States. The funding covers accommodation in Corrib
    Village (10 nights), meals/coffee breaks for the duration of the
    Summer School (except Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th
    of August) and most of the travel costs (at least 75%
    of apex air fare and/or economy train fare).

    Participation from young researchers and women researchers is
    strongly encouraged.

    APPLICATION AND DEADLINES FOR SUMMER SCHOOL

    The Summer School is open to all to apply but space is limited.
    Participants will be selected on the basis of the completed
    application. The deadline for receipt of completed applications is
    MARCH 31st, 2000. Successful participants will be notified by APRIL
    28th, 2000. The deadline for registration and payment of all costs
    (fee, accommodation, meals) is JUNE 16th, 2000.
