International  Conference on  Computational Plasticity
2-4 September 2009
Barcelona, España


Previous meetings in the COMPLAS series were held in Barcelona in 1987, 1989, 
1992, 1995, 1997, 2000 2003, 2005 and 2007. COMPLAS 2007 attracted some 300 

COMPLAS 2009 will address both the theoretical bases for the solution of 
plasticity problems and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and 
robust computer implementation.

The ability to provide numerical simulations for increasingly complex problems 
is advancing rapidly due to both remarkable strides in computer hardware 
development and the improved maturity of computational procedures for 
non-linear systems. Significant advances have been made in the formulation 
and implementation of algorithms for static and dynamic problems involving 
finite strains, complex contact interaction laws, constitutive material 
behaviours including multi-physics or multi-scale effects, progressive large 
scale fracturing, etc.. Such advances, however, demand a closer interaction 
between numerical analysts and material scientists in order to produce 
theoretical models which provide a response in keeping with fundamental 
material principles and experimental observations.

Numerical techniques, and in particular finite element and discrete element 
methods, are now extensively employed in non-linear deformation predictions 
and very often offer the only means of solution for practical engineering 
problems. It is therefore essential to ascertain that such techniques can be 
reliably employed in industrial and R&D applications.

COMPLAS 2009 aims to act as a forum for practitioners in the field to discuss 
recent advances and identify future research directions.

Sessions related to specific topics of the conference will be introduced by a 
Keynote Lecture in the field. These Keynote Lectures will be complemented by 
Invited Sessions organised by recognised experts in targeted research areas, 
as well as by contributed papers received from the general Call for Papers.
