sitges

The COUPLED PROBLEMS 2019 congress will be held on 3-5 June 2019 in Sitges, a beautiful village located in the southern Mediterranean coast of Barcelona in Spain.

The objectives of the congress are to present and discuss state of the art, mathematical models, numerical methods and computational techniques for solving coupling problems of multidisciplinary character in science and engineering. The conference goal is to make step forward in the formulation and solution of real life problems with a multidisciplinary vision, accounting for all the complex couplings involved in the physical description of the problem.

The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide.

Please find all the information in the official congress website.

11th Short course on CODE_BRIGHT

Code_bright

The 11th short course on CODE_BRIGHT will take place from 5th to 7th June 2019.

The course will be held at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, located in the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).

CODE_BRIGHT is a general-purpose code for the 3-D analysis of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) phenomena in geological media. Application fields cover geoenvironmental engineering and geotechnical engineering.
CODE_BRIGHT uses GiD as a pre and post processor.

The three days course will permit the participants to learn how works CODE_BRIGHT, from the fundamentals to solving advanced problems.

Participants are encouraged to bring their personal computers to be used during tutorial sessions. It is strongly recommended to use a Windows 64-bit operating system.

Register and find all the information and the detailed agenda in the official website of the course.
