IS24 - VEM in engineering science
In the last decade, a vivid development of the virtual element method (VEM) as a new
approximation technology took place. It was applied to solid and fluid mechanics problems.
Due to the multidisciplinary nature, the range of application includes problems of
mathematics and engineering. It is constantly extended to new fields.
Engineering applications are on:
- elasticity for small and inelastic deformations,
- fracture mechanics in two and three dimensions,
- homogenization techniques,
- plate problems- contact mechanics,
- coupled and multi-scale problems,
- topology optimization.
The mini symposium aims at gathering researchers in the COUPLED PROBLEMS
communities who work active in the VEM field. It welcomes contributions both from the
theoretical, applicative and computational point of view, and is intended as a fruitful moment
of interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.
