Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you at mini-symposium Creep and Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue within the 4th Canadian Conference on Nonlinear Solid Mechanics at McGill University (July 23-26, 2013, Montréal, Canada). We welcome abstract submissions on the following topics:

  • Constitutive models for creep, creep ratcheting and creep-plasticity interactions.
  • Continuum Damage Mechanics and Fracture Mechanics approaches for creep and fatigue damage predictions.
  • Inelastic structural analysis with (non-uniform) thermal and mechanical loadings.
  • Robust methods for creep and fatigue life assessment under service-type loading conditions.
Deadline for submission of abstracts is March 1, 2013.
