The German Association for Computational Mechanics

The German Association for Computational Mechanics (GACM) is a non-governmental association. The objective of GACM is to stimulate and promote education, research and practice in computational mechanics and computational methods in applied sciences, to foster the interchange of ideas among various fields contributing to computational mechanics, and to provide forums and meetings for the dissemination of knowledge about computational mechanics in Germany.

GACM has individual and corporate members as well as affiliated educational programs. GACM is affiliated to the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) as a national branch. Among others it is also affiliated to all other national and regional organizations affiliated to IACM as well as to the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS).
