APCOM2013 Conference Proceedings
The APCOM/ISCM2013 is an international conference providing an international forum for exchange ideas on recent advances in areas related to mechanics, including computational methods, numerical modeling & simulation, as well as their applications in engineering and science. It will accommodate presentations on a wide range of topics to facilitate inter-disciplinary exchange of ideas in science, engineering and related disciplines, and foster various types of academic collaborations in the Asia Pacific region and internationally. All papers accepted for publication in the proceedings has been peer reviewed.The APCOM/ISCM2013 conference program covers over 600 presentations from more than 40 countries scheduled in about 100 technical sessions. There will be 6 Plenary Lectures, 24 Thematic Plenary Lectures, 120 Keynote Lectures and 120 Invited Lectures at the conference. The conference sessions will cover a broad range of topics in relation to computational mechanics, including formulation theory, computational methods and techniques, modelling techniques and procedures, materials, deformation processing, materials removal processes, processing of new and advanced materials, welding and joining, surface engineering and other related processes.
The proceedings are in electronic form with well-designed convenient links. It consists of the conference program of 117 sessions with papers and/or abstracts linked to the PDF files; an author index linking the paper IDs to the corresponding PDF files of the abstracts and/or papers; and paper ID index with such links. It is simply and explicitly structured, and very convenient to use as well.
We would like to express our gratitude to all the members of the Local Organising Committee, International Organization Committee, and the International Steering Committee who have provided advice and guidance in planning and executing this conference. Our sincere thanks and appreciation go to some 200 international reviewers for their prompt review reports on the submitted papers. Our appreciation goes also to all the Mini-Symposium Organizers for their effort and contribution in the organization. We must single out some members involved in the daily services to this conference, Dr. Fangsen Cui, Dr. Yuan Cheng, Miss Tracy Tang, Jarls Lee, Joanne Leong, and many others. A vote of thanks also goes to members at the Scientech Publisher USA for their management of the conference and production of the proceedings.
