Composites 2019 conference will be held next September in Girona.

7th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on the Mechanical Response of Composites, Composites 2019, will be held at Girona between 18 and 20 of September.

The main goal of Composites 2019 is the scientific investigation of complex mechanical behaviour of composite materials and structures. The conference focuses on theoretical and numerical modelling and prediction of the performance of composite components as well as challenging industrial applications of recent developments. Experimental validation is also covered.

The following plenary speakers are confirmed:

  • Erik Lund. Professor, Solid and Computational Mechanics group, Department of Materials and Production, Aalborg University (Denmark).
  • Stéphane Mahdi. Materials Department Director at IRT Saint Exupéry, Toulouse (France). Expert Composites Structural Analysis at AIRBUS.
  • Thomas Pardoen. Head of the Institute of Mechanics, Materials and Civil Engineering and Professor at the Louvain School of Engineering (Ecole Polytechniquede Louvain)
  • Silvestre Pinho. Professor in Mechanics of Composites, Head of Aero-Structures and EPSRC Research Fellow. Imperial College, London (UK).

Previous editions of this conference were held at the University of Porto (2007), Imperial College London (2009), Leibniz University Hannover (2011), University of the Azores (2013), University of Bristol (2015) and Eindhoven University of Technology (2017). The following edition will be organized by the AMADE research group of the University of Girona together with the Chalmers University of Technology.
