CISM-AIMETA Advanced School on Exploiting the Use of Strong Nonlinearity in Dynamics and Acoustics

The course is structured along three main didactic themes: (i) Foundations – Basic notions, concepts, models and benchmark problems in strongly nonlinear systems (Gendelman, Rega, Vakakis); (ii) Methodology – Advanced analytical and numerical tools for exploiting the strongly nonlinear dynamics and acoustics (Cochelin , Gendelman, Kerschen, Rega, Vakakis); and, (iii) Applications – Addressing practical and diverse problems where the ideas and methods related to strong nonlinearity become necessary (Cochelin, Kerschen, Krack, Vakakis, Vestroni). The course is addressed to graduate students, interested faculty, researchers and professionals.
