Short Course on Optimum Structural Design

Dear Colleague

Re: Short Course on Optimum Structural Design: Fundamentals, software and 

Please find details of a 3-day course on Optimum Structural Design: Fundamentals, 
software and applications by visiting our website at: 

In all engineering problems, designers try to find solutions showing good 
performance, which satisfy several requirements. Using optimization techniques, 
engineers can obtain the optimum, within the imposed conditions.  Structures 
designed in this way are safer, more reliable and less expensive than the traditional 
designs.  This course contains a comprehensive survey of the more efficient methods 
of numerical optimization, including more recent advances. 

The course, presented by Prof Santiago Hernandez from the University of La Coruna, 
Spain and organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology, Southampton, UK, will 
take place from 9-11 June 2004 at Ashurst Lodge, Ashurst, Southampton, UK with a 
limited number of places available.

If you would like to register for the course please complete the form on our website at 

or return the form to

Estimados miembros de AMCA:

Durante el proximo mes de noviembre se realizaran 
los congresos: 
ENIEF'2004 ( ).

Lamentablemente, por un problema de mala comunicacion 
con nuestros amigos brasileros, ambos congresos se 
haran exactamente en la misma fecha.

No obstante, hemos acordado que cada Asociacion publicite 
los dos congresos entre nuestros socios y aumentar la 
comunicacion entre ambas Instituciones para que en años 
venideros esta situacion de simultaneidad no vuelva a

CFP Invited Session ENIEF 2004


"Research on Computational Mechanics of Solids 
and Structures in the Industry"

Pablo D. Zavattieri, GM Research & Development, Warren, MI, USA

The  development of computational tools for modeling material
behavior  under  extreme loading and environmental conditions has become an
important  topic  in the industry. The need to shorten product-design cycle
has  forced  the  R&D  community  to  invest  more resources in the area of
computational  mechanics. However, to take the state-of-the-art of material
modeling  to the point at which engineers can rely on numerical simulations
for  the  different  stages  of  the  product  development process (such as
designing,  optimization, manufacturing and analysis of performance) is not
an  easy  task.  For  instance,  current  phenomenological models are often
simplified approximations to material behavior, and sometimes they are used
well  beyond  their range of applicability. In this session we will include
contributions  to  research  done in the industry and universities directed
towards   the   development,  refinement  and/or  creative  application  of
theories, techniques and numerical tools for the modeling of the mechanical
behavior   of  materials  and  structures  in  applications  of  industrial
interest.  Topics  of  interest  include, but not limited to, the following

·     Development and refinement of continuum constitutive theories,
·     Large nonlinear deformations and adaptivity,
·     Damage, fracture, fatigue and corrosion,

Lugar: Porto Alegre, Brazil

ETT 2004, 27/9 - 1/10, Porto Alegre-RS


A */IV Escola de Primavera Transicao e Turbulência/* tem como objetivo
dar continuidade ao trabalho iniciado em setembro de 1998 pela UFRJ
quando, no Rio de Janeiro, professores, pesquisadores e estudantes se
reuniram pela primeira vez buscando a difusao do conhecimento em
aspectos teoricos, numericos e experimentais nas areas de transicao e

O sucesso desse evento levou a organizacao da Segunda Escola em
Uberlandia (UFU), em 2000 e em Florianopolis (UFSC) em 2002.

E um caminho natural a continuidade da realizacao da Escola pelos claros
beneficios em termos de disseminacao do conhecimento nos temas de
transicao e turbulência e pela proveitosa interacao entre pesquisadores
e alunos de pos-graduacao atuantes na area.

Esta proposta visa a realizacao da proxima ETT em Porto Alegre, RS,
realizada e sediada pelas duas maiores universidades do Estado do Rio
Grande do Sul: a Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul
(PUC-RS) e a Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).

A reuniao de professores/pesquisadores de ambas as Instituicões propicia
as condicões ideais para a realizacao de uma proficua Escola de
