Within the XXIII Congresso Aimeta di Roma, the group of Biomechanics is organising the Minisymposium:

GBMA – Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics

Theoretical and applied mechanics plays a fundamental role in understanding the behavior of biological structures in health and disease. Recent advancements, which acknowledge the essential link between mechanics and chemo-biological mechanisms in physiopathological responses, have allowed developing novel technologies to support diagnostic assessments and to optimize medical devices for improving clinical approaches. Nevertheless, advances in experimental approaches, modelling techniques and computational technologies have to be continuously pursued, in order to build up suitable modern tools for facing the renewed challenges launched by Biomechanics.

The AIMETA Group of Biomechanics – GBMA – organizes this mini-symposium in order to gather the most recent developments in theoretical and applied Biomechanics. A debate among complementary expertise is fostered, for highlighting advantages, drawbacks, potentialities and limitations of methodologies at the cutting edge of Biomechanics. The mini-symposium is open to:
  • all areas of Biomechanics, from cardiovascular through musculoskeletal to respiratory and gastrointestinal systems;
  • biological structures across all scales, from cells through tissues to organs;
  • different methodological approaches, including experimental and computational structural mechanics, experimental and computational fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interaction problems, multiphysics and multiscale coupling;
  • conception, design and analysis of medical devices for diagnosis and treatments

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.
