INTAS coordinating meeting

In the end of March the last coordinating meeting of the representatives of workgroups within the framework of the international project “Micromechanics of composite materials under dynamic loads” was held at Kuban State University. The project has been carried out since 2006 with the support of the European science foundation INTAS – the International Association for the Promotion of Co-operation with Scientists from the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union. The project “Micromechanics of composite materials under dynamic loads” is implemented by the consortium of research teams from six countries. Besides the “youngest” (in terms of the age of its participants) wave group of the Institute of Mathematics, Mechanics and Information Science from Kuban State University (IMMI KubSU) working under the scientific supervision of Prof. Dr. E.V. Glushkov and Prof. Dr. N.V. Glushkova, the research teams from Germany (University of Siegen), Slovakia (Institute of Construction and Architecture, Bratislava), Sweden (Chalmers University of Technology), Spain (University of Sevilla) and Ukraine (Pidstryhach Institute for Applied Problems of Mechanics and Mathematics, Lviv) are the member of the consortium. Each of the foreign partners has already hosted a working coordinating meeting, and the sixth final meeting took place in Kuban State University. Two or three representatives from each of these groups arrived in Krasnodar to take part in this meeting, in particular Prof. Dr. Ch. Zhang, Prod. Dr. A. Bostrom, Prof. Dr. P.-A. Jansson, Prof. Dr. A. Saez, Prof. Dr. F. Garcia-Sanchez, Prof. Dr. J. Sladek, Prof. Dr. V. Sladek, and Prof. Dr. V. Mikhaskiv.
