About Conference

The series of Solid Mechanics Conferences have been organized by the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research since 1953. The conferences have maintained high scientific standard and served as a forum for exchange of ideas and research information. Traditionally a set of invited lectures have been presented at the Conferences by outstanding researchers. The aim of the Conference is to bring together the researches from different countries and to create them the possibilities for the presentation of scientific results from a wide area of solid mechanics, including the topics:

  • biomechanics
  • computational aspects of mechanics
  • continuum mechanics, elasticity and plasticity
  • coupled problems and field theories of solids
  • dynamics of solids and structures
  • experimental mechanics
  • fracture, damage and fatigue
  • geomechanics
  • interfaces, thin layers and contact mechanics
  • mechanics of composites, porous media
  • micromechanics and thermodynamics of materials
  • nonlinear and stochastic dynamics
  • optimization, sensitivity and realiability analysis
  • phase transitions and microstructures
  • smart materials and structures
  • structural mechanics.

The official language of the Conference is English.
