The ’standard’ and ’regular’ problems in solid mechanics are usually tackled using a brute force approach using numerous problem oriented finite element packages and freely available program libraries covering wide range of numerical and physical problems.

Non-standard problems and/or their huge memory and time requirements necessitate to get back to basics of physics, numerical analysis and programming and to come with new computational technologies that gratify our needs, satisfying conditions of efficiency and robustness. Of course, the new approaches should guarantee the physically sound (validated) and numerically verified results.

Mini-symposium aims to bring together engineers and scientists with interests in creating and verifying building blocks of finite element modeling of solid mechanics tasks.


Mini-symposium intends to concentrate on topics related (not only) to


When reporting about advances in the field the attention should be devoted to physics that stays behind the task with consideration devoted to proper setting of model limits.
