Mini-Symposium on Material Nonlinearities and their Effects

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to participate in the Mini-Symposium on Material Nonlinearities and their Effects within the 4th Canadian Conference on Nonlinear Solid Mechanics, CanCNSM 2013, that will be held July 23-26, 2013, at McGill University, Montréal, Canada.

We welcome extended abstracts and full papers submissions on the following topics:

  • Constitutive (material) behavior of nonlinear materials
  • Failure/damage behavior of nonlinear materials
  • Stress analysis using nonlinear constitutive/failure equations
  • Nonlinear numerical stress analysis
  • Large deformation material behaviour
  • Nano/micro composite behaviour
  • Analysis of adhesively bonded materials/structures
  • Viscoelastic/viscoplastic material behavior and stress analysis
  • Fracture behavior of nonlinear materials

Information on abstracts and paper submission is available on conference website:

Please let us know your intention to participate in the Mini-Symposium by contacting the symposium organizer Erol Sancaktar erol@uakron.edu.

Looking forward to meeting you in Montreal at CanCNSM,
