General information

The mathematical foundation of fracture mechanics has seen considerable advances in the last years. This field of study covers a big variety of exciting topics, including propagation of cracks, equilibrium of structures with thin inclusions in the presence of delaminations, frictional contact problems, inverse and control problems. The aim of the workshop "Mathematical analysis of fracture phenomena for elastic structures and its applications" is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of these issues. The workshop provides a platform for researchers from Russia and Japan to communicate, discuss, and exchange ideas under the common theme of fracture phenomena.

The workshop topics:

  • crack propagation
  • modeling of composite materials
  • identification of defects in elastic bodies
  • study of mathematical models for solids with defects
  • investigation of the asymptotic behavior of solutions

Organization and Venue

The workshop is organized by Lavrentyev Institute of Hydrodynamics of SB RAS and Novosibirsk State University.


It is hosted by the Novosibirsk State University, which is located in the world famous Akademgorodok (Novosibirsk, Russia).

The official language of the workshop is English.
