AEM: Advances in the Experiment-Modeling Dialog

Minisymposium organized by

Validation calls for a comparison between numerical modelling and experiments. Huge progress has been made in numerical methods dedicated to failure and crack propagation, and simultaneously full field measurements are now mature techniques to analyze fracture. Model-experiment dialog refers to the key link to be established to provide the best out of both domains. Examples include (but are not limited to):

Attendees are encouraged to present their strategy and recent results in the field of fracture and failure tackled through dedicated experiments and computational modelling, both for materials and structures.
