Fracture mechanics is a significant scientific field of great practical importance. Recently the subject has been invigorated by a number of important accomplishments. From the viewpoint of fundamental science there have been interesting new developments aimed at understanding fracture at the atomic scale; simultaneously, active research programmes have focussed on mathematical modelling, experimentation and computation at macroscopic scales. The workshop aims to examine various different approaches to the modelling, analysis and computation of fracture. The programme will allow time for discussion.
Invited speakers include:
Andrea Braides (Università di Roma II, Italy)
Adriana Garroni (Università di Roma, La Sapienza, Italy)
Christopher Larsen (Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA)
Matteo Negri (Università di Pavia, Italy)
Robert Rudd (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA)
