Bodhinanda Chandra (PhD candidate) and Joel Given (PhD student) recently traveled to the University of Texas, Austin to represent Prof. Kenichi Soga’s Computational Geomechanics research team at the 19th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM).
This conference featured 5 days of exciting presentations that fall under the very broad umbrella of theoretical, computational, and experimental mechanics. Over 60 mini-symposia occurred with groups of mini-symposia being aligned with computational mechanics, fluid mechanics, and solid mechanics.
Bodhinanda Chandra presented: An accurate Hydro-Mechanical Coupled Material Point Method (MPM)
Joel Given presented: Modeling Sand Production with a Stress-Based Removal Rule
