The International Summer School — Conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics — 2014” is the 42nd in a series of annual summer schools held by Russian Academy of Sciences.

The Conference is organized by:
- Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IPME RAS)
- Saint Petersburg State Polytechnical University (Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics)
- Scientific Council on Solid Mechanics (RAS) (chairman N.F. Morozov)
- Russian National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (chairman I.G. Goryacheva)

The main purpose of the meeting is to gather specialists from different branches of mechanics to provide a platform for cross-fertilisation of ideas.

The Conference is organized under the patronage of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).
The main purpose of the meeting is to gather specialists from different branches of mechanics to provide a platform for cross-fertilisation of ideas.

The list of problems under investigation is not limited to questions of mechanical engineering, but includes practically all advanced problems in mechanics, which is reflected in the name of the conference. The main attention is given to problems on the boundary between mechanics and other research areas, which stimulates the investigation in such domains as micro- and nanomechanics, material science, physics of solid states, molecular physics, astrophysics and many others. The conference “Advanced Problems in Mechanics” helps us to maintain the existing contacts and to establish new ones between foreign and Russian scientists.

Scientific program

Presentations devoted to fundamental aspects of mechanics, or spreading the field of applications of mechanics, are invited. We are particularly keen to receive contributions that show new effects and phenomena or develop new mathematical models. The topics of the conference cover all fields of mechanics, including, but not restricted, to

  • mechanics of media with microstructure
  • nanomechanics
  • molecular and particle dynamics
  • phase transitions
  • computational mechanics
  • wave motion
  • nonlinear dynamics, chaos and vibration
  • dynamics of rigid bodies and multibody dynamics
  • solids and structures
  • fluid and gas
  • mechanical and civil engineering applications
  • aerospace mechanics

Accompanying Events:

  • Minisymposium "Computational Contact Mechanics"
  • Minisymposium “'Shells and membranes in biomechanics/medicine”
  • Minisymposium "Discrete Element Modeling of Materials and Processes"
  • Minisymposium "Mathematical and numerical modelling in Hydraulic Fracturing"
  • International workshop "Multiscale modelling in ceramics”
