International Conference on Analysis of Discontinuous Deformation

International Conference on Analysis of Discontinuous Deformation (ICADD) is a conference dedicated to the discussion and promotion of the new methods on representation and analysis of discontinuities, which are widely existed inside the material or the physical field of engineering system {FOOTNOTE()}the Preface of the proceedings of ICADD-1.{FOOTNOTE}. Since the first conference held in Taiwan 1995, there are ten successful meetings and three small symposiums during these years.
