ICOVIS 2018 4th International Conference on VIBRO-IMPACT SYSTEMS and SYSTEMS WITH NON-SMOOTH INTERACTIONS

30 July 2018 to 3 August 2018
Deadline for abstracts: 31 January 2018
Kassel, Germany map
The aim of the conference is to bring together academic and industrial experts from the fields of non-linear and structural dynamics, continuum mechanics, materials science, physics, applied mathematics, and mechanical, aerospace, civil and systems engineering to facilitate the mutual understanding of theory and applications of systems with non-smooth interactions such as vibro-impact systems or systems with contact and friction.
The areas covered by this conference include:
- excitation, synchronisation and stabilisation
- dynamics of machines and processes
- vibration protection of operators and structures in harsh environment
- synergistic effects of repeated impacts or friction on solids and granular media
- non-linear fluid-solid interactions
- analytical, experimental and numerical methods for the analysis of systems and processes
- synthesis and optimisation
- measurements and applications
