International Conference on Computational Contact Mechanics
July 5 - 7, 2017 // Lecce, Italy: With its 5th edition, the International Conference on Computational Contact Mechanics was a reference point for scientists working in the field of Computational Contact Mechanics.
The ICCCM is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community in Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). In the last years, Computational Contact Mechanics has been a topic of broad interest and very intense research. The main effort has been devoted to the development of robust solution schemes and new discretization techniques, which can be applied to different classes of contact problems.
- Adhesion, debonding and failure processes
- Constraints enforcement methods
- Contact algorithms efficiency for single- and multi-processor computing environments
- Contact and debonding constitutive laws
- Contact at the nanoscales
- Contact detection algorithms
- Contact modeling in bio-mechanics
- Discretization techniques of the contact surfaces
- Discrete elements techniques
- Friction and wear
- Multi-field problems with contact constraints
- Multi-scale approaches for contact constitutive laws
- Rolling contact
