Conference Topics

The scientific program of the conference will contain invited plenary talks and talks in parallel sessions. The main topics of the conference are following:
  • solid mechanics,
  • dynamics of mechanical systems,
  • mechatronics and vibrations,
  • reliability and durability of structures,
  • fracture mechanics,
  • mechanics in civil engineering,
  • fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction,
  • thermodynamics,
  • biomechanics,
  • heterogeneous media and multiscale problems,
  • experimental methods in mechanics.
Accepted talks will be presented as lecture presentations. Each lecture room will be equipped with a data-projector and a laptop with Windows operating system.
