The François COSSERAT–Tullio LEVI CIVITA
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATED LABORATORY
The Laboratoire International Associé Coss&Vita was established by the laboratories of the Fédération Francilienne de Mécanique, Matériaux, Structures et Procédés (F2M) and of the International Research Center for the Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems (M&MoCS). The main research topic selected to promote cooperation within Coss&Vita is entitled:
Generalized continua and their applications to engineering materials and structures
The objective of the LIA Coss&Vita is to promote new developments and applications and to strengthen the expertise in the field of generalized continuum mechanics. Specifically, the aim of the LIA is to bring the attention of the Paris–Rome mechanics community on the growing interest in this field in order to stimulate real breakthroughs by taking advantage of the Paris–Rome expertise in homogenization theory, statics and dynamics of heterogeneous media, multiphysics coupling, full–field measurement techniques and available computational mechanical methods.
