SISSA, Trieste

During the months March-April 2013 an intensive period on

“Evolution Problems in Fracture Mechanics”

will take place at SISSA in Trieste in the framework of the ERC Advanced Grant “Quasistatic and Dynamic Evolution Problems in Plasticity and Fracture”.

The activities will be organized around the following minicourses, with daily lectures.

Christopher J. Larsen, 4-8 March 2013: Mathematical issues in globally minimizing, locally minimizing, and dynamic fracture evolutions

Gianpietro Del Piero, 11-15 March 2013: The variational approach to fracture and other inelastic phenomena

Gilles Francfort, 3-13 April 2013: Variational evolution problems in plasticity

Jay R. Walton, 15-19 April 2013: A theory of fracture incorporating interfacial mechanics

Jean-Jacques Marigo, 22-26 April 2013: Gradient damage models and their use in fracture mechanics

Talks on related subjects will be given by the participants and by other visitors.

To participate in this activity, please contact Gianni Dal Maso (

Organizers: Gianni Dal Maso.

Speakers: Gianpietro Del Piero, Gilles A. Francfort, Christopher J. Larsen, Jean Jacques Marigo, Jay R. Walton.
