WTS2016 > Presentation


A thin structure is a three-dimensional object with one or two vanishing dimensions, such as a thin film, a plate, a shell, a beam, a capillary vessel, a network, etc.

The response of a beam to external stresses, the behavior of a tire on a wet road, the heat diffusion in a radiator, the flow of a fluid in connected pipes, and magnetism phenomena in thin films are just examples of questions concerning thin structures.

The aim of the "Fourth workshop on thin structures" (Naples, September 8-10, 2016) is to bring together experts on these topics from different horizons, in order to present and discuss the most recent results concerning mathematical models of thin structures, as well as numerical analysis methods for validation of solutions and their implementation.

The contributions will consist in invited lectures and posters.

The first, second and third edition of this event took place also in Naples, in 2005, 2010 and 2013 respectively.
