Si ricorda che nell'ambito del XXIII Congresso Aimeta di Roma ci sara' un Minisimposio dedidato alla Meccanica Computazionale.

GIMC – Novel Approaches in Computational Mechanics

S. Marfia, A. Pandolfi, A. Reali

Computational Mechanics is becoming a primal research field for most engineering branches, in particular for Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace, Naval, Environmental, and Biomedical Engineering. An active and constantly increasing research effort toward innovative and highly efficient computational techniques has led to the development of new advanced numerical methods able to subside the limitations of conventional finite elements, so far the gold standard discretization tool of Computational Mechanics. Examples of innovative methods are Isogeometric Analysis, Mimetic Finite Differences and Virtual Elements, X-FEM, Immersed Methods, SPH and Particle Methods, and others.
The Italian Group of Computational Mechanics – GIMC – organizes this minisymposium with the aim to provide a forum for discussing advantages, drawbacks, new possibilities and applications of the forefront of Computational Mechanics. The minisymposium seeks at gathering researchers and scholars working on conception, development, mathematical analysis, and validation of advanced numerical methods and modern computational techniques. The MS also welcomes researchers devoted to the development of innovative applications of more classical computational techniques.

The selection board has concluded the evaluation of the six PhD theses submitted to the GIMC/ECCOMAS Award.  The committee was very well impressed by the overall high quality of the five theses. The discussion lead to the following selections:

  • Dr. Elena Gaburro, Università di Trento, as the best Thesis in Computational Fluid Mechanics.
  • Dr. Domenico Magisano, Università della Calabria, as the Best Thesis in Computational Solid Mechanics

Moreover, the selection board has selected as GIMC/AIMETA candidate to the ECCOMAS PhD Award:

Dr. Elena Gaburro, Università di Trento.
