The conference will bring together representants from the industrial and academic world concerned with dynamic issues of composite materials and structures, over a wide frequency band and various encountered solicitations, from low-frequency to shocks.
Participants will debate and exchange on topics and questions like:
-Composite structures design compared to metallic structures design,
-Main issues in the dynamic behaviour of composites materials,
-Validity of numerical methods and models for designing composite structures,
-Improvement of virtual design of composite structures,
Outstanding papers are foreseen on following subjects:
-Dynamic modeling and optimal design of composites,
-Dynamic control of composites,
-Damage tolerance design,
-Experimental verification vs. modelling
Perspectives in terms of certification and validation will also be addressed.
The conference will take place in Arcachon, the 22-24 May 2012.
