Proceedings of the Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering
WELCOME ADDRESS TO THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE XLII IBERO-LATIN-AMERICAN CONGRESS ON COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING (CILAMCE-2021) | 3RD PAN AMERICAN CONGRESS ON COMPUTATIONAL MECHANICS (PANACM 2021)
CILAMCE is an annual conference promoted by the Brazilian Association of Computational Methods in Engineering (ABMEC), intended to serve as an international forum for communicating recent developments on numerical methods in all fields of engineering and related sciences. Since 1977, when it was first launched by the emerging Brazilian community of computational mechanics, CILAMCE has become the leading conference for engineers, students, researchers, and other professionals, mainly from Brazil and Ibero-Latin-America (but also from further abroad), to discuss and explore the state-of-the-art on computational methods in engineering.
PANACM, in turn, is held every three years, promoted by the International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM), and intended as an international forum for communicating recent developments on computational methods in several fields of engineering and applied sciences. The first edition of PANACM was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2015 and the second one in New York, USA, jointly with the 13th World Congress of Computational Mechanics in 2018.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible to organize the joint 42nd CILAMCE/3rd PANACM as an in-person conference. We want to thank all the participants, all the MS organizers and members of the Scientific Committee, who have agreed to support the community by participating in the CILAMCE-PANACM 2021 online version from November 9-12, 2021.
CILAMCE and PANACM are multidisciplinary events: scientists and engineers from all fields are encouraged to attend the conference. The technical program typically includes worldly prominent plenary speakers and several mini-symposia parallel sessions with contributed papers. This volume gathers all full-length papers and abstracts presented at CILAMCE-PANACM 2021. The live plenary lectures were recorded and are available at ABMEC’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrfNWTiJygS-kqTZgZ2lYDw
All the team has worked hard to make this event possible. We would like to thank every member, especially those at the live studio in Rio de Janeiro that made our virtual interaction much richer. We hope you may enjoy this Proceedings.
