High Performance Structures and Materials 2010 (HPSM 2010)
|Event Date/Time: Jul 26, 2010||End Date/Time: Jul 28, 2010|
The use of novel materials and new structural concepts nowadays is not restricted to highly technical areas like aerospace, aeronautical applications or the automotive industry, but also affects fields such as civil engineering and architecture as demonstrated in the proceedings of previous HPSM conferences.
Most high performance structures require the development of a new generation of materials, which can more easily resist a range of external stimuli or react in a nonconventional manner.
Particular emphasis will be placed on intelligent structures and materials as well as the application of computational methods for their modelling, control and management.
The list of topics gives an idea of the wide range of applications to be discussed during the meeting. Contributions on topics not listed are also welcome if they fall within the scope of the conference.
