The workshop will cover both theoretical modelling of the mechanical behavior of materials and structures under dynamic loading and all aspects related to friction and contact.

There will be eight main themes: 1. Constitutive relations and modelling 2. Numerical simulations 3. Perforation and Impact 4. Crashworthiness 5. Experiments and inverse methods 6. Friction and interaction 7. Surface and contact 8. Shock and Blast Loading

We invite authors from the workshop to publish their work in an international Journal and submit it to : Deadline for submission is December 31, 2015 using Peter2015 during the process of submission
