Understanding the mechanical behaviour of solids, liquids and soft and biological materials requires insight into phenomena at different length scales (from bacterial films to volcanic flows). They are both a scientific challenge and an important technological problem. An overarching framework is provided by the name “micro-mechanics”. Combining techniques from continuum mechanics, dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, micro-mechanics uses knowledge of their microscopic structure to make predictive models of the mechanical properties of liquids, solids and soft matter.
Taking place over two days, this international conference features a distinguished line up of speakers, covering a broad range of topics in the micro-mechanics of fluids and materials.
This is event is part of the Fry Conference Series, being held to celebrate the move of the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol to the recently refurbished Grade II listed Fry Building at the heart of the university campus.
Speakers to include:
Mike Cates, University of Cambridge
Elisabeth Guazzelli, University of Paris
Randall Kamien, University of Pennsylvania
Andrea Liu, University of Pennsylvania
Detlef Lohse*, University of Twente
Cristina Marchetti, UC Santa Barbara
Howard Stone, Princeton University
Julia Yeomans, University of Oxford
