Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID 2017), taught by Milan Jirásek, will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, 18-22 September 2017.
This course provides an overview of modeling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to an objective description of highly localized deformation modes such as cracks or shear bands. It is one of the RILEM educational courses. The course is intended for graduate students at the doctoral level, but it can be equally useful to motivated master students, post-doctoral researchers, or senior researchers who are not specialists in this field.
For details see http://mech.fsv.cvut.cz/~milan/course2017.html
For registration please contact Milan.Jirasek@fsv.cvut.cz .
The PhD position is part of Klima 2050, a Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) financed by the Research Council of Norway and 20 consortium partners, hosted by SINTEF. Klima 2050 aims to reduce the societal risks associated with climate changes and increased precipitation and floodwater exposure within the built environment.
