International Conference on COMPUTATIONAL MODELLING OF NANOSTRUCTURED MATERIALS

September 4-6, 2013     Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Objectives and topics:
Development of nanoengineering technologies and creation of nanomaterials opened new perspectives for a number of areas of industry and everyday life. These materials demonstrate increased strength, toughness, biocompatibility, and can ensure higher service properties, reliability and lifetime of devices and systems.
This conference seeks to build bridges between modeling approaches, based on the physical, mechanical and materials science concepts, creating the basis for the interdisciplinary development of comprehensive computational tools for the optimal design and virtual testing of nanomaterials.
The International Conference is organized in the framework of the collaborative research project "Virtual Nanotitanium" (VINAT) funded by the European Commisssion in the framework of FP7 programme.
This Conference covers the following topics:
- Computational models of mechanical behavior and physical properties of nanomaterials, linking their nanostructural and service properties,
- Continuum mechanics, molecular dynamics and quantum ab-initio methods as tools for computational modeling of nanomaterials,
- Nanostructured and ultrafine-grained metals, thin films, multiphase materials and their modelling
- Experimental validation, software development and practical applications of computational models of nanomaterials.
