Rationale

In the wake of fast development of new technologies, many
areas of contemporary engineering, that were conventionally divided
or loosely coupled in the previous times, merge together to meet new
challenges. This is very evident specially in the area of contemporary
dynamics, since engineering dynamics is a fundamental technical
discipline that serves as a starting point of many rising technologies in
aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering and naval architecture
as well as many other related disciplines.

By having its origin in continuum mechanics, engineering dynamics is very often 'theoretical common
ground' to various technologies in different areas of technical application. In the framework of this
environment, by using numerical simulation technologies, it is possible today to model, analyse and design
complex engineering systems by utilizing mathematical models and methodologies that classicaly belonged to different fields of applied sciences. Of course, these possibilities bring up new application opportunities but also give possibility of gaining new understandings of fundamental physical phenomena. However, succesfull implementation of advanced numerical methodologies in domain of coupled problems of contemporary engineering dynamics rise many questions in terms of proper use of specific methodologies.

Since studying of these phenomena requires modeling of different types of systems and continuum
that come into dynamic interaction like deformable structures and fluid flow in aeroelastic and hydroelastic
applications or multibody systems with unilateral constraints and aerodynamic loadings, many approaches
attempt to synthesize optimal methodologies combining different modeling techniques of computational
mechanics. With development and coupling of existing methods and modeling procedures, the use of
numerical simulation tools is changing from the traditional 'physics-based' approach towards the 'applicationbased' view, where several physical models co-exist and interact within the same simulation procedure.

 

Objective

The objective of the workshop is to get together distinguished academics and industrial experts to deliver invited lectures on different aspects of modeling of coupled problems in numerical dynamics. The aim is to discuss relevant issues in the field and disseminate expertise to international graduate students of engineering and to researchers.
Aeroelastic applications in aeronautical engineering and aerospace, fluidstructure interaction in mechanical engineering and naval architecture, hydrodynamic applications and topics of flexible multibody dynamics will be covered by invited lectures and submitted presentations.

 

Audience

The targeted audience are graduate students of aerospace
engineering, mechanical engineering and naval architecture as well as researchers and engineers from industrial companies active in the field.
