The Fourth Asian Conference on Mechanics of Functional Materials and Structures (ACMFMS 2014) is the successor of the First, the Second and the Third conferences held at Matsue, Japan in 2008, Nanjing, China in 2010, Delhi, India in 2012, respectively.
The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for researchers and academics, particularly from East Asia and neighboring region, to interact, exchange ideas and establish relationships, with a view to future cooperation and subsequent development of research in theoretical and applied mechanics of solids.
Young university faculty and researchers are especially encouraged to participate, and use this opportunity to network with others in similar situations, who will also be seeking to develop their research abilities and experience.
This is a conference on theoretical and applied mechanics of solids, with particular focus on the following, but not limited to them:
  • Mechanics of Functional and Intelligent Materials
  • Mechanics of Functional and Smart Structures
  • Structural Health Monitoring
  • Elasticity (Mathematical, Thermo, Electro, Electromagneto, Photo)
  • Plasticity (Mathematical, Multiscale, Thermo, Visco)
  • Fracture and Damage Mechanics
  • Impact Mechanics and Dynamic Material Behavior
  • Contact Mechanics
  • Solid-Fluid Interaction
  • Bio-Mechanics
