8th International Symposium on Solid Mechanics

Welcome to Mecsol 2022 – the 8th International Symposium on Solid Mechanics. Mecsol is a biennial conference promoted by the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering – ABCM, and organized by its Committee of Solid Mechanics. This edition will be held in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, from October 17th to 19th, 2022.

The goal of Mecsol 2022 is to be a platform to present and discuss the most recent problems and solutions in the industry and academy in solid mechanics. In this international platform we will gather scientists, students, and professionals in the vanguard of the most challenging problems in these areas. The conference will create productive discussion and collaboration opportunities in its application, experimental, numerical, and theoretical aspects.

The topics of interest are: Fatigue and Failure Analyses; Composite Materials and Structures; Elasticity, Plasticity, Damage and Fracture Mechanics; Viscoelasticity and Viscoplasticity; Impact Engineering; Structural Reliability Methods and Reliability-Based Design Optimization; Optimization of Materials, Fluids and Structures; Numerical Methods; Nonlinear Analyses; High-Performance Computing applied to Solid Mechanics; and Artificial Intelligence- and Neural Network-supported applications.

This edition of the event will involve cooperation between three committees of ABCM: Solid Mechanics, Smart Materials and Structures, and Fracture Mechanics, Fatigue and Structural Integrity. Mecsol 2022 will be a great opportunity to gather together researchers from the scientific communities linked to these committees to share their findings.

Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to contribute with their state-of-the-art research papers. All the presented papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Original contributions may be submitted, in the English language, through this website. Please refer to the front page for important dates and deadlines.
