The 2nd International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2019)
Welcome to MSAM 2019!

The 2nd International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2019) will be held from May 27-30, 2019 in Kiev, capital of Ukraine. Sponsored by Pisarenko Institute for Problems of Strength, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, MSAM 2019 will represent a broad forum for all aspects of material strength to promote our fundamental understanding of material strength under different conditions. MSAM 2019 will also provide an opportunity to present and discuss recent analytical, experimental and computational results in the field of Applied Mechanics to bridge the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. The plenary session will include Keynote Speeches, Invited Speeches, Poster Presentations and Oral Presentations.

Ukraine was the most industrially developed Republic of the former USSR. Its aircraft Antonov and spacecraft and rocket-launch producing plants are well-known worldwide. its agrarian capacities are huge, which make it lucrative for international cooperation. Kiev is known for numerous historical places from 11th century that have UNESCO's status. It is a picturesque city with over 2 million official inhabitants.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend MSAM 2019 and we look forward to meeting you all in Kiev, capital of Ukraine!
