Computational Modeling of Fracture and Failure and Structures
The purpose of CFRAC 2019 is to bring together academic researchers and industrial partners involved in the development and application of numerical procedures for fracture and failure simulation of materials and structures, in an effort to facilitate the exchange of ideas in topics of mutual interest and to serve as a platform for establishing links among research groups in Europe and worldwide.
Designers of engineering structures must answer to ever increasing requests on performance in terms of safety, reliability, durability, low cost and low energy consumption.
As new materials and new applications arise, traditional design rules and conventional testing methods become insufficient or inapplicable, which strengthens the role of computational methods in the design process. Numerical tools can accelerate the development of new products and their optimization.
