Subject: Mini-symposium “Computational methods for damage tolerant analysis: Industrial case studies”, ECCM2010
The IVth European Conference on Computational Mechanics-ECCM 2010,
will be held in Paris, France, May 16-21 2010 (http://www.eccm2010.org/).
During the conference, EDF (Erwan Galenne, Samuel Geniaut), SNECMA
(Alain Pyre, Hacène Cherouali), and CENAERO (Eric Wyart and myself) are
proposing a mini-symposium entitled:
“Computational methods for damage tolerant analysis: Industrial case
Knowing your interest in the field of computational fracture mechanics,
we would like to invite you, or your colleagues, to apply to this
The objective of this mini-symposium is mainly to compare different
strategies to solve a given industrial damage tolerant problem, on
several points of vue:
-capabilities (e.g. propagation...);
There is one supplied industrial-like model to study in several load
configurations, in order to propose difficulty levels.
This mini-symposium will give the opportunity to the participants and
attendees to compare and measure the new achievements in this topic,
enabling them to use new strategies to develop their own approaches.
The attached presentation will describe the problem and required data
(CAD and FE models will be supplied in a second time to the participants)
You are invited to show your interest by applying on the ECCM2010
website (http://www.eccm2010.org/ ).
Whether you would have any question regarding this topic, do not
hesitate to contact us.
The organizers of the mini-symposium.
