What Does The Future Of Computational Mechanics Look Like?

Computational Mechanics, as is evident from its nomenclature, is a discipline that involves the use of computational methods to study mechanical processes. Essentially an interdisciplinary area of study which involves the use of computer science, mechanics and advanced mathematics, Computational Mechanics has pervaded far and wide into the field of science and technology. Be it industrial processes, software simulation, artificial intelligence or the biological sciences, today it is hard to think of any field of modern study that has not been touched by Computational Mechanics. And considering recent trends, this wide-spread application of Computational Mechanics should continue in the future too.

Computational Mechanics And Artificial Intelligence (AI)

As most of us know, AI is going to be the technology of the future. With everything from our smartphones to airplanes being subsumed in the domain of artificial intelligence, it is hard to think of a future where AI will not play a major role. And Computational Mechanics can be a big contributor to this field. Already the use of Computational Mechanics in order to develop AI Expert Systems has begun. We can expect that in the future, Computational Mechanics will continue to play a major role in AI.

Computational Mechanics And Industry

Computational Mechanics already plays a role in various industries. From being used in modeling vehicle crash scenarios to predict the flow of fluids (Computational Fluid Dynamics) through pipes, Computational Mechanics already plays a big role in multiple fields. With the rise of automation, and increasing mechanization of the factory floor, it can be easily expected that Computational Mechanics will continue to be of use in industry.

Computational Mechanics And Computer Science

It is no secret that Computer Science already pervades and will continue to pervade multiple facets of our lives. And as Computational Mechanics is intrinsically linked to this field already, its influence can be expected to continue. Computational Mechanics is helping in software development and computer architecture design. There is further scope for use of this discipline in designing network systems that offer better quality of service and greater coverage.

Future Of Computational Mechanics In Design And Manufacture       

Computational models already play a big role in design and manufacturing processes such as CAD/CAM. However, current models may be limited to approximations of the systems in question. This is primarily due to the lack of availability of adequate computing power. With the advent of more powerful computer systems and quantum computing systems, such impediments may be expected to overcome, thus allowing Computational Modeling to play a bigger role in the manufacturing and design of products. As more resources are available, modeling systems will be able to design better products, taking into account multiple, complex factors.

Robotics And Computational Mechanics

As already mentioned above, Robotics and Automation are expected to play a major role in the future of the world. Robots are complex systems which need to continually create a model of their current state in order to function according to their requirements. Computational Mechanics will continue to play a big role in the manufacture and control of robotic systems and algorithms. By use of Computational Mechanics it should be possible to create robots which are more responsive and efficient.

The Future Of Medical Science

One of the most important impacts that Computational Mechanics is expected to have will be in the field of medical science. The human body is a complex system, and multiple mechanical and fluid processes take place inside us every moment. Computational Mechanics can help to successfully model processes such as the flow of blood through the human body, the functioning of various organs and limbs and much more. This will enable medical practitioners and researchers to develop more advanced treatment methods.

Computational Mechanics And The Cities Of The Future

Finally, mention must be made of the cities of the future. It is no doubt that cities are growing, becoming vastly complex systems in their own right. In order to properly maintain cities and public utilities such as water and power supply, perform road network analysis and consumption pattern prediction Computational Mechanics can be of immense help.

It can be safely said the future of Computational Mechanics looks bright indeed. As it continues to makes forays into newer and greater applications in our future, the discipline will continue to grow with leaps and bounds.

Schedule For World Congress On Computational Mechanics 2018

IACM (International Association of Computational Mechanics) is an association established to support advances in the field of computational mechanics. As an international organization, the association’s activities bring together works and organizations focused on computational mechanics from around the globe.

IACM places all its affiliate associations into three major geographical regions. These are Americas, Australia-Asia, and Euro-Africa. The association’s constitution provides a level playing field for the regions in hosting the world congresses in a four-year cycle among the three regions.

Thus far, several congresses have been organized successfully in the past. The upcoming congress that is anxiously expected is the 2018 Congress on Computational Mechanics.

The upcoming congress that is anxiously expected is the 2018 Congress on Computational Mechanics

The 2018 Congress On Computational Mechanics

The 2018 Congress is the 13th edition of the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM). The Congress, WCCM XIII, will be jointly hosted alongside the 2nd Pan America Congress on Applied Mechanics from July 22 -27 in New York, United State of America.

The WCCM XIII and PANACM II Congress is expected to bring together one of the largest gatherings in computational mechanics in 2018 with expected participants from all over the globe. Expected are representatives from different sectors of the economy. This includes representatives from the government, academia and the industrial sectors of the economy.

The Schedule Of Events

From the publication made by the chairpersons of the event, Jacob Fish (General chair), Thomas Hughes (Honorary chair) and Haim Waisman (Technical Program chair), the Congress hopes to cover a wide scope of topics with over 300 Minisymposia that are organized into 19 tracks. Some of which are:

  • Honorary Minisymposia
  • Damage, Fracture and Failure Mechanics
  • Multiphysics and multiscale systems
  • Mechanobiology and Biomechanics
  • Materials and Manufacturing processing
  • Micro and Nano-mechanics of engineering
  • Structural dynamics, Mechanics, and Engineering
  • Natural materials and geomechanics
  • Visualization and Imaging of scientific systems

The submission of paper abstracts is presently open and is expected to close on 31st December 2017. Authors are encouraged to take necessary steps to register and follow the procedures provided for the submission through the congress website.
