About Symposium

A vast majority of objects or solids that surround us arise from some growth processes. As an example, one can present natural phenomena such as the growth of biological tissues, glaciers, blocks of sedimentary and volcanic rocks, and space objects. Similar processes determine the specific features of many technologies in industry, including well-known technologies of crystal growth, laser deposition, solidification of melts, electrolytic formation, pyrolytic deposition, polymerization, and concreting. Recent research has shown that solids formed by growth processes differ in their properties essentially from solids in the traditional view. Moreover, the classical approaches of solid mechanics to modeling the growing solids behavior fail. They should be replaced by new ideas and methods of modern mechanics, mathematics, physics, and engineering sciences. Thus, at present, a new area of solid mechanics is forming, which deals with the construction of adequate models of solid growth processes. The main objectives of the IUTAM Symposium on Growing Solids include a joint discussion of fundamental, computational, and applied problems of the new scientific area by leading mechanicians, mathematicians, physicists, and technologists, exchange of the latest ideas and achievements, as well as working out the main directions of its further development. The symposium program includes topics such as the fundamental problem of solid growth processes, numerical modeling of growth, moving boundaries and interfaces, surface science, phase transitions, dislocations and disclinations in solids, crystal growth, growth of bone and soft tissues, laser deposition, solidification of melts, electrolytic formation, and engineering applications.
