The focus of this symposium is computational modeling of the physical processes of growth/accretion, dissolution/corrosion, and fracture/degradation, which share many similarities and can be sometimes described using unifying mathematical models. Applications of interest are:
- biomechanics and mechanobiology of cells and tissues (e.g. growth and rupture of cells and tissue);
- mechanics and electrochemistry of energy materials (e.g. dendrite formation and fracture in Li-ion batteries; corrosion damage and stress-corrosion cracking);
- geological and ice problems (e.g. melting, re-solidification, and fracture of ice).
