UGent joins DYMAT Board

During the last General Assembly, Patricia Verleysen was elected as new member of the Governing Board of DYMAT, the European association for the promotion of research into the dynamic behaviour of materials and its applications.

The principal aim of the DYMAT Association is to bring together engineers and scientists from all nations working in the fields of crashworthiness, ballistics, blast effects and dynamic material processing. For this purpose, the Association organizes the International DYMAT Conference every three years. DYMAT also encourages the technical meetings, seminars, training courses and student camps to promote dynamic materials research.
