Book Description

Recent Advances in Computational Mechanics contains selected papers presented at the jubilee 20th Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics (CMM 2013), which took place from 27 to 31 August 2013 at the Poznan University of Technology. The first Polish Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics was held in Poznan´ in 1973. This very successful meeting initiated a series of conferences organized every two years by different Polish universities. Over the years the series gained an increasingly international character. The common general objective of the CMM conferences is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new ideas referring to the theoretical background and practical applications of computational mechanics. The program of each conference reflects current extensive research in this field of science.

This proceedings volume addresses various aspects of computational mechanics, including advanced analysis of structures, modelling of material properties, damage mechanics, contact mechanics, biomechanics, heat transfer and coupled problems.

This book will be of interest to students, researchers and practitioners in the fields of structural mechanics, mechanical engineering, material technology and biomechanics.
