In the wake of fast development of new technologies, many areas of contemporary engineering, that were conventionally divided or loosely coupled in the previous times, merge together to meet new challenges. This is very evident specially in the area of contemporary dynamics, since engineering dynamics is a fundamental technical discipline that serves as a starting point of many rising technologies in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering and naval architecture as well as many other related disciplines.
By having its origin in continuum mechanics, engineering dynamics is very often 'theoretical common ground' to various technologies in different areas of technical application. In the framework of this environment, by using numerical simulation technologies, it is possible today to model, analyse and design complex engineering systems by utilizing mathematical models and methodologies that classicaly belonged to different fields of applied sciences. Of course, these possibilities bring up new application opportunities but also give possibility of gaining new understandings of fundamental physical phenomena. However, succesfull implementation of advanced numerical methodologies in domain of coupled problems of contemporary engineering dynamics rise many questions in terms of proper use of specific methodologies.
Since studying of these phenomena requires modeling of different types of systems and continuum that come into dynamic interaction like deformable structures and fluid flow in aeroelastic and hydroelastic applications or multibody systems with unilateral constraints and aerodynamic loadings, many approaches attempt to synthesize optimal methodologies combining different modeling techniques of computational mechanics. With development and coupling of existing methods and modeling procedures, the use of numerical simulation tools is changing from the traditional 'physics-based' approach towards the 'applicationbased' view, where several physical models co-exist and interact within the same simulation procedure.


The objective of the symposium is to get together distinguished academics, researchers and industrial experts to present papers and deliver invited lectures on different aspects of modeling of coupled problems in numerical dynamics. The aim is to discuss relevant issues in the field and disseminate expertise on mathematical models and numerical procedures in 'multi-physics' into academic, research and industrial community.
The topics on coupled numerical dynamics and 'multi-physics', such as aeroelastic applications in aeronautical engineering and aerospace, fluid-structure interaction in mechanical engineering and naval architecture, hydrodynamic applications, topics of flexible multibody dynamics, biomechanics and control will be covered by invited lectures and submitted presentations.


The targeted participants are Ph.D. students, researchers and industrial engineers active in the field as well as students of aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, naval architecture and other engineering disciplines.
