The Third Australasian Conference on Computational Mechanics

Deakin University, Waurn Ponds Campus | February 12–14, 2018

Deakin University is proud to host the Third Australian Conference on Computational Mechanics.

The conference will be at our Waurn Ponds Campus, within the state-of-the-art Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET) building.


Welcome message from Conference Co-Chairs

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the organising committee and as the co-chairs, we would like to welcome you to the 3rd Australian Conference on Computational Mechanics (ACCM-3) held in Melbourne, Australia from 12-14 February, 2018.

The Australian Association for Computational Mechanics (AACM) facilitates the organisation of this premier biennial conference. The conference aims to provide an international forum for researchers, industry practitioners, engineers and postgraduate scholars to promote, exchange and disseminate recent findings on contemporary and wide-ranging topics in Computational Mechanics.

Computational Mechanics is a fundamental subject of engineering science. It underpins all of the primary engineering disciplines, including Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, and Materials Engineering. Computational Mechanics addresses a broad range of areas, from conventional structural and mechanical designs, failure analysis, dynamic and vibration analysis, and fluid mechanics to cutting-edge computational mechanics, nano-micro mechanics, multiscale mechanics, coupled multiphysics problems and novel materials. This is truly reflected in the variety of fields featured in the conference topics. One key aim of ACCM is to retain and engage high quality graduate students in Computational Mechanics research. ACCM aims to nurture the talent of young researchers through its best paper awards.

The ACCM series started in 2013 with the ACCM-1 and ACCM-2 held in Sydney and Brisbane, respectively.  The ACCM conference has become a flagship activity of AACM and will be regularly organised. ACCM will accommodate presentations on a wide range of topics to facilitate inter-disciplinary exchange of ideas in science, engineering and allied disciplines, and helps to foster collaborations.

The ACCM conference is unique in that it showcases the current trends and research developments in Computational Mechanics in the Australasian region and its relationship to national and regional priorities. The papers to be presented at ACCM-3 will address many grand challenges in modern engineering. The full papers to be presented at ACCM-3 will be peer-reviewed by expert reviewers including members of the National Scientific and Local Organising Committees for ACCM-3. The topics of these papers will range from nano- to macro-mechanics of materials, dynamics, sustainable manufacturing, biomechanics and computational mechanics.

Finally, we invite you to participate in the ACCM-3 conference, and hope you will have a wonderful and richly rewarding conference experience in Melbourne, Australia. We look forward to your participation at this and continued engagement at future ACCM conferences.
