Scope

The conference is intended to provide a major forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion of recent developments in all mechanics, probabilistic-methods and materials research fields. The technical sessions and symposia on fundamentals, tools and applications serve to highlight and promote educational needs, emerging thrusts, novel techniques, and innovative applications in areas that span across many engineering disciplines relevant to engineering mechanics and probabilistic mechanics and structural reliability. Special sessions should be submitted directly to the conference chairs to emipmc12@nd.edu.
