Dear colleagues,

We will be delighted to meeting you all in Fréjus for this real-life workshop on generalized continua!

Best regards,


Mechanical architectured materials are designed to feature extreme or non-classical properties such as negative Poisson’s ratio or strain floppy modes. These emergent properties may require generalized continua such as strain-gradient or micromorphic continua in order to bring-out accurately the effective mechanical behavior.

A particular attention will be paid to non-classical up-scaling methods, new topology optimization techniques, experimental characterization of the non-classical properties and the computational techniques required by generalized continua.


 – Up-scaling methods for non-classical continua in mechanics
 – Fabrication and testing of non-classical continua
 – Topology optimization of Metamaterials
 – Computational and numerical aspects
