4th International Conference on Inverse Problems in Mechanics of Structures and Materials IPM 2017 will take place from 31 May to 2 June 2017 in Krasiczyn (Poland). This is one of the ECCOMAS Thematic Conferences. For further information please visit www.eccomas.org
Inverse Problems in Mechanics
Inverse Problems in Mechanics (IPM) are related to the analysis of excitations for known responses of the Mechanical System (MS) and/or searching the structure of MS and its parameters. IPM can be ill posed or ill conditioned so they need regularization and various optimization techniques to eliminate non-uniqueness of solutions and instabilities of algorithms.
The Inverse Mechanics (IM) attracts attention mainly because of its close relations to many design problems. IM opens the door to the assessment of real structures and materials. Inverse problem is difficult for modelling and analysis since it needs the application of advanced hard and soft computational methods supported on various experimental techniques. Multiscale modelling and homogenization methods have to be completed by efficient parametric identification and data banks with results of measurements on laboratory models or real structures. IM is commonly used to detection of damage, health monitoring and durability prediction not only structures but also in other systems, e.g. related to biomechanical problems of materials and structures.
The IPM 2017 Conference is a continuation of the IPM Symposiums held in 2009, 2011 and 2013. The main objectives of these conference are to get together scientists, engineers and researchers working in various fields of inverse mechanics to make a forum for information exchange and discussion of new research and applications in engineering. The Organizers will try attract also PhD students and young researchers.
This time the IPM 2017 conference is conncected with 15th Symposium of Structural Dynamics. More information about this symposium can be found on the website of DYNKON 2017.
