GIAN course (OFFLINE mode) on "Continuum Mechanics" from 25th May to 3rd June 2023 at MNIT Jaipur India

A short-term (10 days) GIAN course on "Continuum Mechanics" is being organized (in an OFFLINE mode) at Malaviya National Institute of Technology (i.e., MNIT) Jaipur, India 25th May - 3rd June 2023. This course is intended for the faculty members, UG and PG (engineering and science) students, Ph.D. Scholars, design/research engineers, and scientists working in industries or research establishments.
About GIAN: This course is being conducted under the Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) scheme of the Ministry of Education (MoE), Govt. of India. The GIAN initiative of MoE is aimed at tapping the talent pool of scientists and entrepreneurs internationally to encourage their engagement with the Institutes of Higher Education in India to augment the country's existing academic resources, accelerate the pace of quality reform, and elevate India’s scientific and technological capacity to global excellence.
About the Course Instructor: This GIAN course will be conducted by Prof. Karan Surana, Deane E. Ackers University Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kansas Lawrence, Kansas, United States. Prof. Surana’s areas of interest and expertise include computational mathematics, computational mechanics, and continuum mechanics. He is the author of over 350 research reports, conference papers, and journal articles. He has served as advisor and chairman of 50 M.S. students and 25 Ph.D. students in various areas of Computational Mathematics and Continuum Mechanics. He has delivered many plenary and keynote lectures in various national and international conferences and congresses on computational mathematics, computational mechanics, and continuum mechanics. Prof. Surana’s most notable contributions include large deformation finite element formulations of shells, the k-version of the finite element method, operator classification and variationally consistent integral forms in methods of approximations for BVPs and IVPs, and ordered rate constitutive theories for solid and fluent continua. His most recent and present research is in non-classical continuum theories for solid and fluent continua and associated constitutive theories. He is the author of recently published textbooks: Advanced Mechanics of Continua, CRC/Taylor & France, The Finite Element Method for Boundary Value Problems: Mathematics and Computations, CRC/Taylor & Francis, The Finite Element Method for Initial Value Problems: Mathematics and Computations, CRC/Taylor & Francis, and Numerical Methods and Methods of Approximation in Science and Engineering, CRC/Taylor & Francis.
