Polish Association for Computational Mechanics and Poznan University of Technology are organizing

Short Course on Mechanics of Random and Fractal Media

The course will be delivered by Professor Martin Ostoja-Starzewski (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and will take place at Poznan University of Technology on 25-26 June 2015.

All who are interested in Mechanics of Random and Fractal Media or would like to deepen their knowledge about it are kindly invited to participate in the course.

Further details are contained in the attached Announcement and on the website:

Course Outline (6×2 hours)

  1. Introduction to stochastic geometric models of microstructures
  2. Lattice models (periodicity vs. randomness, rigidity, dynamics, and optimality)
  3. Mesoscale bounds for random elastic media; size of representative volume element (RVE)
  4. Mesoscale bounds for random nonlinear (in)elastic media
  5. Scalar/tensor random fields; fractal and Hurst effects
  6. Connection to stochastic partial differential equations and stochastic finite elements (SFE)
  7. Wavefronts in random media
  8. Mechanics of fractal media via dimensional regularization
  9. Classical (Cauchy) versus generalized (Cosserat/micropolar or nonlocal) models
  10. Elastic-plastic-brittle transitions and avalanches in disordered media
  11. Generalized thermoelasticity theories
  12. Continuum mechanics vis-à-vis violations of the second law of thermodynamics
