Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH), known for its academic strength, publications, research and proximity of IT and industrial hubs, has invited applications for a short term course on ‘Nonlocal Mechanics Approaches for Modelling Localized Deformations’ (NMAMLD). The classes will be held from February 19 to 21, 2020, and last the date to apply via email before December 15, 2019.
The course will present an assessment of modelling approaches used in the mechanics of elastic and inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to the objective description of highly localized deformation modes like fracture, damages and shear bands.
Dr. Amirtham Rajagopal, Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, IITH said, ” This course aims at providing students, researchers and engineers working in automotive, civil, aerospace, mechanical engineering and materials and manufacturing industries with theory and applications of nonlinear and nonlocal mechanics approaches for modelling localized elastic and inelastic deformations.”
The course will be taught by IITH faculty and renowned International faculty from Texas A&M University USA like Professor Arun Sriivasa and Professor JN Reddy.
Candidates have to pay a registration fee which will be inclusive of all lectures, reference books, course material and food. For BTech/MTech students the fee will be ₹7000, research scholars have to pay ₹10000, academic institutions have to pay ₹15000 and industry players have to pay ₹20000.
