The 2010 Meeting will be hosted by Iowa State University of Science and Technology, one of the first Land Grant Institutions in the nation. The University is recognized internationally for its interdisciplinary programs in the areas of human, social, economic, and environmental sustainability, renewable energies, advanced materials; and high performance computing. The university is the home of the US DoE Ames National Laboratory, and 11 research and technology centers, including the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation. The College of Engineering is among the 10 largest in the US, ranks second nationally in R&D100 research and development awards, fifth nationally in patents awarded, and twelfth nationally in start-up companies launched from its research. The Aerospace, Mechanical and Materials Sciences Engineering Departments' offers divers teaching and research programs in the general area of applied mechanics and materials. A team of representatives from the Departments of Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Sciences and Engineering and the College of Engineering will be working together to bring you the 2010 Technical Meeting.
The overarching theme of the conference is multi-scale multi-physics phenomena. The conference will have the following general topical tracks: biomechanics, computational methods, dynamics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of materials and structures, multi-physics phenomena, and non-destructive evaluations.
ABOUT SESThe Society of Engineering Science fosters and promotes the exchange of ideas and information among the various disciplines of engineering and the fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics, bioengineering and related scientific and engineering fields. The organization is comprised of scientists, engineers and mathematicians from around the world who recognize that solutions to critical modern problems transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. SES Conferences are recognized as leading forums for bringing together diverse, interdisciplinary groups of researchers to discuss advances in highly focused symposia.
