IUTAM 2018 General Assembly
The most recent IUTAM General Assembly took place at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, from July 22--25. The USNC/TAM sent a delegation of five to the GA: Gareth McKinley (MIT; Delegation Chair), Wendy Crone (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Linda Franzoni (Duke University), Wing Kam Liu (Northwestern University), and Krishnaswamy Ravi-Chandar (University of Texas at Austin). More information is available on the General Assembly website.
Additive Manufacturing Events in 2018
As a result of the 2015 USNC/TAM workshop, "Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing," multiple additive manufacturing events were scheduled for 2018.
The first was a conference hosted by the AM-Bench group, an organization devoted to the development of benchmark tests for validating computational situations for additive manufacturing. The AM-Bench conference was held at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, from June 18--21, 2018. Brandon Lane and Lyle Levine of NIST co-chaired the organizing committee of the conference.
The second of these events is a US-EU workshop to be held from October 24--26, 2018 in Germany. The workshop, "Integrated Mechanistic Data-Driven Modeling for Additive Manufacturing," will be led by Michelle Schwalbe, NAS Director of the Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics. More information about the workshop will be posted on this webpage as it becomes available.
The third of these events will take place in Washington, DC on November 7 and 8, 2018. The 3rd ASTM Symposium on Structural Integrity of Additive Manufactured Parts will, according to the event organizers, provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the fatigue and fracture behavior of materials and components fabricated using additive manufacturing with a focus on the lack of industry standards, design principals, as well as qualification and certification criteria. This event is designed for professionals within the AM community including industrial (aerospace, medical, automotive, and defense), academic, government, and regulatory capacities.
Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing: Proceedings of a Workshop is now available for download or purchase.
2018 U.S. National TAM Congress and USNC/TAM Meeting
The 18th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics was held from June 4 to June 9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare, hosted by Northwestern University.
The last USNC/TAM Meeting was held in conjunction with the U.S. Congress in Chicago, and took place on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
WAM2016 Report Now Available for Purchase
In October 2016, the Workshop on Predictive Theoretical, Computational, and Experimental Approaches for Additive Manufacturing (WAM 2016) was held in China. The workshop report, authored by organizers Xu Guo, Gengdong Cheng, and Wing-Kam Liu, may be purchased on Springer.com.
