The International Conference on Modern Practice in Stress and Vibration Analysis (MPSVA 2018) is organized by the Applied Mechanics Group (AMG) of the Institute of Physics.

The conference is well-established for the presentation of research findings in stress analysis and vibration dynamics with the intention of providing directed focus on the state-of-the-art in theoretical and experimental methodology.

The aim of the conference is to bring together physicists, mathematicians, materials scientists and engineers from academia and industry, and to provide a platform for the presentation of creative and novel research findings facilitating an interchange of ideas and providing guidance for future research direction.

The scope of the Conference is broad and covers the full range of fundamental, experimental and applied research in stress and vibration analysis:

  • composite materials
  • computational techniques
  • contact mechanics
  • damage assessment
  • damping materials
  • fatigue and fracture mechanics
  • finite and boundary elements
  • full/Multi field techniques
  • identification and control
  • inverse problems
  • measuring and modelling residual stresses
  • mechanics of advanced materials under vibro-impact loading
  • multi-functional and smart structures
  • multi-scale analyse
  • rotating systems
  • tribology
  • vibration based structural testing

Organised by the IOP Applied Mechanics Group
