Computational Modeling of Fracture and Failure of Materials and Structures

du 3 juin 2015 au 5 juin 2015

The 4th International Conference about fracture and failure simulation of materials and structures will be held in ENS Cachan, from 3rd to 5th of june.

CFRAC 2015

Designers of engineering structures must answer to ever increasing requests on performance in terms of safety, reliability, durability, low cost and low energy consumption.

As new materials and new applications arise, traditional design rules and conventional testing methods become insufficient or inapplicable, which strengthens the role of computational methods in the design process.

Numerical tools can accelerate the development of new products and their optimization.

The aim of the conference is to gather academic researchers and industrial partners involved in development and application of numerical procedures for fracture and failure simulation of materials and structures, in an effort to facilitate the exchange of ideas in topics of mutual interest and to serve as a platform for establishing links among research groups in Europe and worldwide.


The speakers of this conference will be :

  • X. OLIVER from Technical University of Catalonia, Spain
  • M. JIRÁSEK from Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic
  • O. ALLIX from École normale supérieure de Cachan, France
  • N. MOËS from École Centrale de Nantes, France

The Symposium will take place on the Campus of ENS cachan, in  Cachan at about 20 minutes from the center of Paris.
