Online Course on Computational Fracture Mechanics by IIT Bhubaneswar [May 24-June 4]: Registrations Open


The School of Mechanical Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bhubaneswar is organizing an Online Course on Computational Fracture Mechanics from May 24 to June 4, 2021.

The aim of this short course is to present the state-of-the-art and the most recent developments in computational and experimental methods for the analysis and simulation of fracture at multiple scales, such that the design of materials can be optimized.

IIT Bhubaneswar, established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011 came into existence on 22nd July 2008. The Institute strives to offer the best engineering education with unmatched novelties in the curriculum.

Course Objectives
  • Expose the participants to the fundamental aspects of material design: Analysis of stress and strain, stress concentration, failure criterion, theories of failure, analysis of plates, closed-form solutions, and their limitations.
  • To build confidence and capability amongst the participants on computational methods through approaches to develop constitutive equations for bulk, governing equations, strong and weak forms, overview of the finite element method (FEM), the partition of unity and enrichment techniques, and level sets.
  • Discussions on processes and characteristics of composite materials, macro, and micro-mechanical behavior of lamina and laminate, and the experimental techniques for the characterization and testing of composite materials.
