Workshop on the Multiphysics Behavior of Rubber
30 nov - 01 dec 2017, Marseille, France





Abstract submission is open: deadline august 24, 2017 extended deadline october 13, 2017

Conference dinner will take place at les Arcenaulx on November 30

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in this special workshop on the Multiphysics Behavior of Rubber which will be held in Marseille.


The objective of this workshop is to gather people from the European rubber
community allow them to exchange on different approaches developed for complex
multiphysics behavior of rubber like materials either submitted to complex
thermomechanical loadings or designed to be sensitive to specific loadings.
The idea is to focus on the relationship between experimental, modeling and numerical

The topics concerned are the following:

  •     thermo-(chemo)-mechanical couplings
  •     chemo-physical evolutions, aging
  •     smart materials, magnetorheological elastomers,...
