CEEM hosts EMI 2021/PMC 2021

Oct 13 2021

The Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Columbia University in the City of New York hosted virtually (May 25-28, 2021) the 2021 Engineering Mechanics Institute conference (EMI 2021) - the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) premiere annual mechanics conference, and the 13th ASCE Specialty Conference on Probabilistic Mechanics and Reliability (PMC 2021) - offered by ASCE every four years as a special venue for related work in probabilistic methods. 

The conferences brought together more than 750 scholars from around the world to exchange and disseminate the most recent developments in engineering mechanics and probabilistic methods across wide ranging fields related to the discipline of Civil Engineering understood in the broadest sense. Indicative scientific topics included Probabilistic Mechanics, Structural Health Monitoring, Dynamics, Computational Mechanics, Multiscale and Multiphysics, Geomechanics and Geomaterials, Biomechanics and Bio-inspired engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Damage and Fracture Mechanics, and Mechanics of Materials and Material Science.
