• EMMC16 ( 16th European Mechanics of Materials Conference) aims at gathering researchers sharing a common interest in the field of mechanics of materials, yet working in a variety of application domains : material science, mechanical and civil engineering, but also biomechanics, geophysics, ...

    Session 17 focus on Coupled experimental-numerical approaches in Materials characterization  :

    To understand and predict the mechanical behavior of metallic materials, an in-depth understanding of the dominant mechanisms operating at different length scales is needed. This involves going from the atomic scale of dislocation cores to the nanometer and micrometer scales characteristic of the microstructure, all together responsible for the macroscopic mechanical behavior. Such widespread knowledge can only be gathered through a constant dialogue between experiments and simulations; dialogue, which has lately been promoted thanks to the development of advanced mechanical models and new experimental settings. In this session, the interplay between experimental observations and predictive models at the nano- and micron-scales is a central theme. We encourage contributions that directly couple experimental and numerical approaches at the same or different length scale.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Micro and Meso deformation experiments and simulations
    • Dislocation mechanisms and their observations
    • Fracture mechanisms and related experiments
    • Micromechanical constitutive laws and their validation against experiments
    • Modeling and experimental observations of phase transformations

    This session is organized by Helena Van Swygenhoven (EPFL, Lausanne, Swiss) and David Rodney (UL, Lyon, France).

    Abstract submission deadline: September 30, 2017.

  • Le Groupe des Utilisateurs de Microscopie électronique Philips-FEI (GUMP) attache une importance toute particulière à faire interagire, entre elle, la comunauté des microscopistes francophones. Chercheurs ou industriels, physiciens ou biologistes parlent tous des langues différentes, mais arrivent à se rassembler autour de la même technique: La microscopie.

    La prochaine réunion se déroulera à Metz du Jeudi 19 Octobre 2017 (8H30) au Vendredi 20 Octobre 2017 (12H30), et la thématique abordée sera la microscopie in-situ. De nombreux conférenciers, experts dans leur domaine, vous présenteront leurs travaux et/ou leurs développements pour vous faire voyager des mécanismes de la structure de la matière inerte, à la complexité du vivant.

    Le programme et les formalités d'inscription sont accessible, en suivant le lien: http://gump.microscopie.org/

  • The focus of the International GRK 1896 Satellite Symposium “In Situ Microscopy with Electrons, X-rays and Scanning Probes” at the ICEAM2017 lies on recent advances in the direct study of material processes under the influence of external stimuli such as temperature, mechanical strain, magnetic/electric fields and chemical environments and their simulation by scale-bridging modeling techniques. The symposium aims to provide a forum for discussion between researchers from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and abroad and distinguished invited experts, to promote the interdisciplinary exchange of new developments in the rapidly evolving field of complementary in situ microscopy and simulation techniques.

    Session 15 focus on Experimental nanomechanics :

    Nano- and micromechanical testing coupled with advanced in situ techniques has attracted significant attention over the past decade because it permits (i) probing individual microstructure constituents and (ii) selectively activate mechanisms. Both is key to fundamentally understand plasticity and fracture of advanced multi-phase microstructures and small scale systems. The main objective of this thematic session is to gather specialists in the field of Nano- and Micromechanical testing to unravel mechanisms of plasticity and fracture at interfaces.

    Characterization techniques envisioned comprise (but are not limited to) transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and synchrotron based techniques. The contributions should aim for understanding plasticity, fracture and fatigue at

    • grain and phase boundaries
    • amorphous / crystalline interfaces
    • free surfaces
    • multilayered systems
    • super lattices.

    This session is organized by Christoph Kirchlechner (MPIE, Düsseldorf, Germany) and Frédéric Mompiou (CEMES, Toulouse, France).

    Abstract submission deadline: September 30, 2017.
