Milan Jirasek Advanced course on

Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation

taught by Milan Jirásek

in Prague, Czech Republic, 9-13 September 2019


This course provides an overview of modeling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to the objective description of highly localized deformation modes such as cracks or shear bands. It is organized as one of the RILEM educational courses. In 2018 it attracted 26 participants from 9 European countries, India and Australia.
Independently of the course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID2019), it is also possible to attend a course on OOFEM, which takes place at the same location on 16-18 September 2019. OOFEM is an object-oriented open-source software package for solid mechanics, with extensions to fluid mechanics and transport problems.
