ISSEC 2014

Joint Symposium
Irish Mechanics Society
Irish Society for Scientific Engineering
& Computation

NUI Galway

Galway 8-9th of December
Engineering Building

The aim of ISSEC is to bring together researchers in mechanics and engineering from various fields. We expect a board range of topics in mathematical modeling, computational methods and experimental techniques to mention a few. The research efforts may concern material properties and mechanical response of any type of engineered and natural material, and they may be relevant to different scales in space and in time.

The symposium will consist of several focused sessions on a range of topics in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and numerical methods. Topics of interest will include, but are not limited to, elasticity, plasticity, fracture mechanics, composite materials, finite element methods, biomechanics, computational fluid dynamics, fluid-solid interactions, turbulence. Presentations on applied mechanics research, ranging from biomedical engineering and medical device design to structural, environmental and energy systems engineering, are particularly welcome.

Final year doctoral students who present a talk at this meeting will be eligible as the Irish nominee for the ECCOMAS prize for the Best PhD thesis in Computational Methods in Applied Sciences & Engineering.

The Registration Fee will include morning and afternoon refreshments.

We will organise an informal dinner and social night out the Monday evening at the Meyrick Hotel, providing an ideal opportunity to enjoy the unique Galway Christmas festivities.
