This book presents new research results in multidisciplinary fields of mathematical and numerical modelling in mechanics. The chapters treat the topics:

  • mathematical modelling in solid, fluid and contact mechanics

  • nonconvex variational analysis with emphasis to nonlinear solid and structural mechanics

  • numerical modelling of problems with non-smooth constitutive laws, approximation of variational and hemivariational inequalities, numerical analysis of discrete schemes, numerical methods and the corresponding algorithms, applications to mechanical engineering

  • numerical aspects of non-smooth mechanics, with emphasis on developing accurate and reliable computational tools

  • mechanics of fibre-reinforced materials

  • behaviour of elasto-plastic materials accounting for the microstructural defects

  • definition of structural defects based on the differential geometry concepts or on the atomistic basis

  • interaction between phase transformation and dislocations at nano-scale

  • energetic arguments

  • bifurcation and post-buckling analysis of elasto-plastic structures

  • engineering optimization and design, global optimization and related algorithms

The book presents selected papers presented at ETAMM 2016. It includes new and original results written by internationally recognized specialists.
