First Summer School on Micromechanics

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.

The program of the school is oriented to needs of the postgraduate students and young scientists and includes three courses (14 academic hours each) and Research orientation workshop (30 academic hours).

Taught courses:

Research orientation workshop:

The Research Orientation Workshop will consist of master classes taught by world leading specialists in micromechanics and round tables in small groups (4-6 students) on:
