Conference Topics

The topics of interest are wide ranging. They include computational  aspects of:

  • Discretization techniques;
  • Solution algorithms for single- and multi-processor computing environments;
  • Multi-scale approaches to contact problems;
  • Methods for rolling contact;Contact and debonding constitutive laws;
  • Discrete element models for contact;
  • Multi-field problems with contact constraints.

Technical applications are also welcome in the areas of interface problems for solid bodies, failure processes in heterogeneous materials, textile and laminated composites, bio-mechanics as well as  thermo-electro-mechanical contact problems.
