The U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM) represents the United States in national and international activities related to the broad science of mechanics, including related sciences, engineering and mathematics. It serves as a focal point for charting future priorities in mechanics related research, applications and education. It represents the United States in the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM).
New USNC/IUTAM Overview Video Wing Kam Liu of Northwestern University, former chair of USNC/TAM, discusses the national committee's involvement with IUTAM and its efforts to engage engineering students and early careers.
IUTAM/AmeriMech Symposium to be Held in U.S. in September 2017 "Dynamics of Gravity Currents," a symposium dually sponsored by IUTAM and AmeriMech, will be hosted by University of California, Santa Barbara next year. The symposium, organized by Eckart Meiburg of UC Santa Barbara and Ben Kneller of the University of Aberdeen, is tentatively scheduled for September 25--27, 2017. For more information about this symposium, download the complete PDF.
2017 USNC/TAM Annual Meeting The next USNC/TAM meeting will be held Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the NAS building in Washington D.C.
The workshop is an extension of last October's "A Workshop on Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing" held in Washington, DC at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Both workshops aimed to foster collaboration among professionals and undertake challenges within the field of additive manufacturing.

Additive Manufacturing Workshop Media Available For Download The recent USNC/TAM-hosted Workshop on Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing was a tremendous success. The three-day workshop featured 24 presentations from speakers in academia, industry, and government labs, and the Livestream workshop broadcast has already reached over 200 live and 1,700 total viewers.
Workshop participants Ade Makinde (GE Global Research Center), Tahany El-Wardany (United Technologies Research Center), Peter Olmstead (Georgetown University), and Joseph Beaman (University of Texas - Austin) were happy to answer additive manufacturing questions in a video for NAS.
All workshop media, including session videos, meeting agenda, and presentation PDFs, are listed on the 2015 Additive Manufacturing Workshop page.You can also click below tobrowse and view the eight session videos.
Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing: Proceedings of a Workshop is now available for download or purchase. As a result of this workshop, Lyle Levine, Project Leader of Additive Manufacturing of Metals at NIST, has proposed a series of benchmark tests and an accompanying conference series. Dr. Levine's ideas for AM-Bench are loosely based upon his existing NUMISHEET benchmark test series, which has profoundly influenced the sheet metal field for over 25 years. The project, which aims to start developing AM standards, requires input from experts across the board in industry, national labs, and academia.
If you are interested in joining the planning committee, which will define the scope and organization of this series, please contact Lyle Levine at Lyle.Levine@nist.gov.
