7th International Conference on Mechanical and Physical Behaviour of Materials under Dynamic Loading
Journal de Physique IV – Vol. 110 Porto, Portugal - September 8-10, 2003
J. Cirne, A. Lichtenberger
Since 1985, DYMAT Association organizes every three years an International Conference on Mechanical and Physical Behaviour of Materials under Dynamic Loading. This book contains all oral and poster presentations accepted for this conference.
As previously an opportunity will also be provided for scientists, engineers and industrials working on problems associated with the dynamic loading of materials to exchange information and share experiences both in relation to the overall macroscopic response of materials and in relation to the microscope mechanisms which control this behaviour.
The conference is divided into five main topics: constitutive equations, numerical solutions, new testing and measuring techniques, structural response under impulsive loading and, finally, shock loading.
