Milan Jirasek Advanced course on

Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation

taught by Milan Jirásek

in Prague, Czech Republic, 6-10 September 2021


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 2019 it attracted 17 participants from 10 European countries. Due to the covid pandemic, the course was not held in 2020. However, the situation in Czechia has greatly improved and the 2021 edition of the course can take place in safe conditions.
Independently of the course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID2021), it is also possible to attend a course on OOFEM, which takes place at the same location on 13-15 September 2021. OOFEM is an object-oriented open-source software package for solid mechanics, with extensions to fluid mechanics and transport problems.
