15th SHORT COURSE ON COMPUTATIONAL PLASTICITY

Barcelona, 2-3 September 2019

Objectives

The 15th edition of the COMPLAS course on computational plasticity aims at providing a comprehensive view of the theory of plasticity for the computational solution of problems in engineering and applied sciences. The theoretical lectures are complemented with others presenting applications of computational plasticity to a number of practical problems.
