On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 2014 International Conference on Advances in Micromechanics of Materials which will be held at Rzeszów University of Technology, Rzeszów, Poland, 8-11 July 2014.

Please download and display the conference poster.

Organisers and sponsors

MICROMECH2014 is jointly organised by the two Consortia participating in FP7 PEOPLE Projects:

The event is supported by the Committee on Mechanics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.


Micromechanics of materials is rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of engineering science. It is developed by specialists in solid mechanics, applied mathematics and materials science. Micromechanics studies materials that can be generally characterized as multiphase mixtures. Perhaps, the most important class of them can be described as a matrix containing various inhomogeneities, like pores, microcracks, fibers, foreign particles. Another example is given by polycrystalline aggregates (like metals), consisting of crystallites of diverse orientations. Such materials may be man-made (composites, metals, foams) and may occur in nature (cracked or porous rocks, ice, bones). The goal of micromechanics is to relate the physical behavior (mechanical, conductive, etc.) to the ‘‘microstructure” – properties and geometrical arrangement of the constituents.

MICROMECH2014 is the premiere forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of analytical, computational and experimental micromechanics as well as on various applications of micromechanical modeling to problems of materials science, biomechanics, geomechanics etc. The conference will bring together leading researchers, engineers and scientists in this domain of interest from around the world.
