This book discusses physical and mathematical models, numerical methods, computational algorithms and software complexes, which allow high-precision mathematical modeling in fluid, gas, and plasma mechanics; general mechanics; deformable solid mechanics; and strength, destruction and safety of structures. These proceedings focus on smart technologies and software systems that provide effective solutions to real-world problems in applied mechanics at various multi-scale levels. Highlighting the training of specialists for the aviation and space industry, it is a valuable resource for experts in the field of applied mathematics and mechanics, mathematical modeling and information technologies, as well as developers of smart applied software systems.
Lakhmi C. Jain, Ph.D., M.E., B.E.(Hons), Fellow (Engineers Australia), is with the Faculty of Education, Science, Technology & Mathematics at the University of Canberra, Australia, and Bournemouth University, UK. Professor Jain founded the KES International for providing a professional community the opportunities for publications, knowledge exchange, cooperation, and teaming. Involving around 5,000 researchers drawn from universities and companies world-wide, KES facilitates international cooperation and generates synergy in teaching and research. KES regularly provides networking opportunities for professional community through one of the largest conferences of its kind in the area of KES. His interests focus on the artificial intelligence paradigms and their applications in complex systems, security, e-education, e-healthcare, unmanned air vehicles, and intelligent agents.
