U.S. National Committee FOR TAM

The National Academy of Sciences is the U.S. adhering body of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and it maintains its relationship with the union through the U.S. National Committee (USNC)/TAM. Founded in 1946, IUTAM strives to create a link between persons and national or international organizations engaged in theoretical or applied scientific work in solid and fluid mechanics or in related sciences.
 

WHAT'S NEW

AmeriMech Symposium Proposal Deadline: April 30, 2014
The U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM) invites proposals for organizing AmeriMech symposia. AmeriMech symposia are intended to promote interactions among researchers in an area of contemporary interest in the mechanics of fluids and solids. Symposia proposals that have already been approved include:

Researchers interested in organizing an AmeriMech symposium are invited to submit a proposal by April 30, 2014. More details can be found on the AmeriMech website.


17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
Conference Dates: June 15-20, 2014
Registration is now open for the 17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. The Congress will be co-chaired by John Foss and Tom Pence. Technical sessions will cover a range of topics, including fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics, vibrations, controls, biomechanics, computational mechanics, applied physics, and applied mathematics. 


New Report Series Launched: Recent Trends in Mechanics
The USNC/TAM has initiated a new series of periodic reports, Recent Trends in Mechanics. Report proposals are due April 15th of each year. More information on the types of reports included in the series and report proposal guidelines can be found on the Reports: Recent Trends in Mechanics website.

Recent Trends in Mechanics reports that were completed in 2013 or 2014 include:


2014 IUTAM General Assembly
The 2014 IUTAM General Assembly is expected to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. The General Assembly is the union’s highest authority and each adhering organization has representatives with voting rights in the General Assembly. For more details on the members and observers of IUTAM's General Assembly, please consult the IUTAM website.


PAST EVENTS

2013 Workshop on Mathematics of Climate Change, Related Natural Hazards and Risks
This workshop brought together about 40 young researchers, mainly from Latin America and the Caribbean, and a dozen distinguished scientists. It was jointly organized by the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM), and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). For more details, please consult the 2013 Mathematical Congress of the Americas website.


2012 International Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM)
The 23rd ICTAM was held August 2012 in Beijing, China, featuring extensive participation by the USNC/TAM and its members. The committee also provided travel fellowships to 19 recipients, from a variety of career stages. For more details, please consult the Activities and Events website.
