 Scientific Program:

The following main topics are proposed:
1. Hierarchical, refined mathematical and technical models of shells, plates, and beams;
2. Relation of 2D and 1D models to 3D linear, non-linear and physical models;
3. Junction problems.

The main aim of the symposium is to show the relation of shell, plate, and beam models to the 3D and physical models. In particular, peculiarities of cusped shells, plates, and beams will be emphasized and special attention will be paid to junction, multibody and fluid-elastic shell (plate, beam) interaction problems and their applications. The expected contributions of the invited participants will be theoretical, practical, and numerical in character.
