A paper I worked on with J.S. Chen is now available online. It studies how damage propagates between scales in concrete:

Last Monday I give a keynote lecture at the Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference (EMI 2017) in San Diego. The topic of the presentation was Stable and Robust Meshfree Integration for Extreme Event Simulations.
I co-organized a symposium MS 23: Extreme Events Modeling with J. S. Chen (UCSD) and Jason Roth (Army ERDC).
I am also the coauthor of several presentations which you can find in the program.
Congratulations to J. S. Chen and Yuri Bazilevs for their successful conference!
And happy 80th birthday to Zdeněk Bažant!
