 This EUROMECH colloquium will focus on the behaviour of biological networks (including collagen-based tissues and structures), cellulose networks, non-wovens and technical textiles, metamaterials, composite networks and classical composites with network reinforcement. The underlying common features between these different classes of fibrous materials, which are typically poorly appreciated and exploited, will be emphasised. This will provide the opportunity to cross-pollinate based on advances made in the different research communities and will bring needful synergy to the research fields.
The focus of the colloquium includes the following state-of-the-art topics:
- Fibre constitutive descriptions and time-dependent behaviour;
- Multi-scale numerical strategies for fibrous materials;
- Multi-physics (liquid/moisture/temperature) interaction in fibrous materials;
- Damage and fracture mechanisms in fibrous materials;
- Multi-scale experimental characterization techniques;
- Mechanical testing for identification and validation purposes;
- Design and optimization of fibrous materials;
- Data-driven and AI methods
This EUROMECH Colloquium reaches both industrial and academic researchers in the field.
