Period03 Mar - 09 Mar 2019
Nonlinear elastodynamics sets a plethora of challenging mathematical problems such as those concerning wave propagation in solids. Elastic vibrations and acoustic waves have been widely studied because of their applications in nondestructive tests of materials and structures, and, in recent times, several novel aspects of the theory of wave propagation in solids have blossomed thanks to the introduction of metamaterials and new technological devices. The goal of this workshop was to bring together researchers with different backgrounds to discuss recent advances, and to stimulate future work.
