• DPG and EPS Spring Meeting 2018, Symposium Fundamentals of Fracture, Berlin, 11-16 March 2018

    This symposium is intended as an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest scientific developments regarding the physics and mechanics of fracture. Rather than addressing specific engineering problems and approaches, this symposium will cover fracture of brittle and semi-brittle materials at a fundamental level, with a focus on  crack nucleation and crack-microstructure interactions. We aim at bringing together specialists from the fields of solid state physics, materials science, continuum mechanics, statistical physics and mathematics to cover theory, multi-scale modeling and experiments related to

    • Initiation of fracture and crack nucleation
    • Grain boundary fracture and interface cracks
    • Crack – obstacle interactions
    • Interplay of fracture and plasticity
    • Fracture of nanostructures and disordered materials
    • Fracture of composites
    • Statistical aspects of fracture
    • Micromechanical and local approaches to fracture

    A special joint session on advanced micro- and nanomechanical fracture testing methods is envisaged with the planned EPS mini-colloquium »Mechanical properties at small scales« organized by Gerhard Dehm, Olivier Thomas and Laurent Pizzagalli.

    The conference will take place at the Technische Universität Berlin.

    Conference fee :

    Students: 100/130 € 
    Regular Participant: 220/250 €
    Reductions for DPG-Members

    Deadline for abstract submission : 01.12.2017
