Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (Czech Republic)

Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID 2021),
taught by Milan Jirásek in Prague, Czech Republic, 6-10 September 2021.

This course provides an overview of modeling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to 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.

OOFEM course in Prague, Czech Republic, 13-15 September 2021

Moreover, the Department of Mechanics, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, has prepared a training course for Ph.D. students, engineers interested in simulation and researchers who wish to quickly acquire the knowledge and practical skills necessary to employ OOFEM (an object-oriented open-source software package for solid mechanics, with extensions to fluid mechanics and transport problems). Participants will learn how to create, analyze and post-process models. Moreover, they will understand the OOFEM code structure and they will learn how to implement custom material models, elements, boundary conditions, or solvers.

The course takes place in Prague on 13-15 September 2021 and it will be delivered by a team of skilled OOFEM developers. No prior knowledge of OOFEM is required; however, a basic knowledge of C++ is highly recommended.For details see
