Login Abstract Submission



The objectives of the Congress are to provide a forum for scientists and engineers from academia, research laboratories, and industry from all over the world who are involved in the field of thermal stresses to exchange ideas and to extend further cooperation among participants. The Congress should forge cooperative links between researches and engineers by bringing them to one place where they present their achievements and conduct discussions.



This is a conference on thermal stresses and related topics, with particular focus on the following, but not limited to them: 

uThermal Stresses and Deformations 

uThermoelasticity and Viscoelasticity

uThermal Stresses in

uContact Mechanics

uDynamic Problems

uFracture and Fatigue of Heterogeneous Materials and Manufacturing


uThermal Shock

uContinuum Thermomechanics

uHeat Conduction, Convection and Radiation Problems

uExperimental Methods in Thermomechanics

uComputational Methods in Thermomechanics

uControl of Thermal Structures

uInstability and Localization under Thermomechanic Loading

uInverse and Optimization Methods in Thermomechanics

uThermal Stresses in Smart Materials

uThermal-Induced Fracture of Smart Materials 


Almost all the engineering materials, but mainly the up-to-date ones are thermoscopic, hygroscopic and deformable. In most of the cases the coupling between the fields of displacement, thermal and moisture is not negligible. Because of the relation between Fourier's and Fick's laws and Soret&Dufour effects most of the results of the TM can be applied in HM and extended for the THM. Based on these, a few reasons why to join to the special session on THM:

a) You deal with thermo- and hygroscopic materials, e.g. composites, concrete, human tissues, biomaterials, geomaterials, etc.

b) You deal with sophisticated theoretical problems and like the interdisciplinarity.

c) You like to approach the problem from the side of the tool, e.g. FEM, CAD, electrical analogy (EA), PDE, etc.

d) You are expert in experiments and like the challenges. The THM needs the experimental methods.

e) You like those people who deal with such problems and you want to join to them. (Irony!)

f) There is a shallow plan to establish a journal or a newsletter on THM. During the CTS, in the frame of the special session we will have the possibility to speak about and form a group to work on the idea.
