July 27-29, 2020: Virtual Symposium on Experimental Solid Mechanics
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, invites you to join us from July 27th to 29th, 2020, for a virtual Symposium on Experimental Solid Mechanics. The symposium is being organized in honor of Prof K R Yogendra Simha, who has worked extensively in the areas of fracture mechanics, impact mechanics and photoelasticity, and has taught and mentored generations of mechanical engineers. The event kicks off with a Young Researchers Meet (YRM) on July 27th, which includes a panel discussion on Research & Career Opportunities in ME @ IISc. The symposium will feature invited talks by eminent and early career researchers from across the globe on a broad range of topics related to experimental solid mechanics.

July 27th: YRM talks, abstracts & schedule

July 28th & 29th: talks, abstracts & schedule
