1st International Conference on Mechanics of Solids

FEUP, Porto - Portugal
3-4 November 2022

MS 2022

Welcome to the web site of the 1st International Conference on Mechanics of Solids that will take place in Porto, Portugal, 3-4 November 2022. The conference venue is the campus of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), which offers excellent facilities for high quality scientific interactions. FEUP is located in the town of Porto in the Northern region of Portugal. Porto is a beautiful and lively city, steeped in history and rich in great experiences. With its magnificent location by the Atlantic coast, Porto is the city of the world famous Port Wine and the River Douro.
This conference is held every year. The conference is chaired by António Ferreira and Lucas F. M. da Silva. The focus is on the mechanics of deformable solids, dynamics of particles and rigid bodies. The conference objective is to disseminate the last developments in the field of solid mechanics in a friendly way. Papers related to basic mechanics theory as well as more applied technological aspects are welcome.

Special topics of interest are:
. automatic control theory;
. dynamics of multiple body systems;
. elasticity, viscoelasticity and plasticity;
. fracture mechanics;
. gyroscopes and navigation systems;
. heat transfer and thermal effects in solids;
. mechanical behavior of materials;
. mechanics of composite materials;
. mechanics of granular and geological materials;
. micromechanics of solids;
. nanomechanics;
. numerical techniques;
. optimum design methods;
. stability and optimization of mechanical systems;
. structure-fluid interaction;
. theory of structures and structural stability;
. tribology;
. vibration of discrete and continuous systems;
. wave propagation and impact of solids.

Proceedings/publications

Conference proceedings with the accepted abstracts will be available at the registration.

Special Issues or regular issues (subjected to peer-review)

The full length papers should be sent electronically to Lucas F M da Silva at lucas@fe.up.pt until 3 November 2022.

The conference chairmen will sort out the papers and attribute a special issue for each paper. Before the review process starts, the list is confirmed with the editors in chief of the journals and with the authors. If the authors agree with the selection, the review process starts. If the author does not agree, he/she can submit to another journal not listed in the special issues. The review process will be faster than usual but subjected to the usual peer review.
