New Models in Hydrocodes is an international biennial conference concerned with all aspects of high-rate and shock loading. It covers all aspects of experiment, theory and modelling. This conference is supported as part of the series of Pressure, Energy, Temperature and Extreme Rates (PETER) conference series.

There will be seven main themes: 1. Experimental methods and results 2. Constitutive behavior and models (including EOS, deviator phase transition, etc.) 3. Damage mechanics (including spall, ejecta, etc.) 4. Explosives (including both unreacted and reacted characteristics, detonation, reaction zone, etc.) 5. Models of material behavior (atomistic, MD, continuum, and multi-scale linkages in time and space) 6. Numerical methods (Eulerian, Lagrangian, ALE, et) 7. High velocity impact.

There will also be a special session honoring the works of Brad Holian and Michel Mareschal

Organised by the IOP Shockwaves and Extreme Conditions Group
