Paper for post-conference proceedings


Rio de Janeiro has been known as the “wonderful city” long before one of its landmarks was officially included into the Seven Wonders of Modern World. Its contrasting landscape of rocky mountains, the world’s largest urban forest, lakes and an unending beach line can only be matched in beauty by its warm, gentle and hospitable people: the “cariocas”. The recently renovated downtown and old harbor areas add to a new contrast between tradition and modernity, although keeping our “carioca” aura.

A Conference of the ASCE / Engineering Mechanics Institute

The EMI Conference in Rio de Janeiro is the third international event organized by ASCE/EMI after Hong Kong (January 2015) and Metz, France (October 2016). It will be an excellent opportunity for interactions and exchanges within the global mechanics community, in general, and shall offer the South American engineers, in particular, a chance to become familiar with the EMI and ASCE activities (

The attendant will be offered the opportunity of developing invaluable international peer collaboration and network initiatives, which may include taking part on several EMI committee meetings.

You are invited to present original research results in the technical sessions to be organized and publications to be issued on traditional and advanced topics of Experimental, Computational and Engineering Mechanics.

Information of not lesser relevance: Citizens from many countries (such as USA, Canada, China, India and Japan) need a visa to enter Brazil (just as tourists). Its issue is usually straightforward, but may demand some weeks. Please check on TRAVEL & HOUSING.
