2nd MUSIC Summer School on "Multiscale Modeling of Interfaces and Advanced Solution Techniques"
The 2. MUSIC Summer School on “Multiscale Modeling of Interfaces and Advanced Solution Techniques” has taken place in Hannover, Sept. 8-12. This time about 60 participants, coming from 5 countries, having 15 different nationalities, followed 26 lectures, given by 12 renowned scientists. As for the collaboration with our partner university, the ENS in Cachan, France, it was organized as a german-french summer school, also supported by the Franco-German University, Saarbrücken.
The late summer sun welcomed the group at the campus Herrenhausen and the courses could be followed up in the green atmosphere of the Faculty of Architecture and Landscape Sciences. Of course, the offered Hannover-sightseeing tours within the social program enriched the 5-days-stay.
The banquet dinner on Thursday highlighted this scientific get-together, hearing farewells from the participants like “hope to see you next time!
8 - 12 September 2014
The Graduate School MUSIC offers its second Summer School at the Leibniz Universität Hannover from 8 to 12 September 2014. This year's summer school on "multiscale modeling of interfaces and advanced solution techniques" is hosted by the Institute of Continuum Mechanics.
The summer school 2014 focuses on theoretical and computational aspects of modern interface modeling. Leading experts from France and Germany give an introduction into the fields of fracture and contact mechanics, fatique and failure analysis from a multiscale and multiphysics point of view. Each of the areas needs appropriate solution techniques, like Isogeometric Analysis, the eXtended Finite Element Method, the Mortar method, the Non-intrusive Coupling and the Proper Generalized Decomposition which will be presented as well at the summer school.
