Describes the micro- and macro-behavior, new existence and uniqueness theorems
Discusses new trends and applications of generalized continua
Explains many effects of the mechanical behaviour of solids and fluids that can not be explained by the available classical models
This volume presents contributions describing the micro- and macro-behaviours, new existence and uniqueness theorems, the formulation of multi-scale problems, etc. and now it is time to ponder again the state of matter and to discuss new trends and applications. The main focus is directed on the following items - Modelling and simulation of materials with significant microstructure, - Generalized continua as a result of multi-scale models, - Multi-field actions on materials resulting in generalized material models, and - Comparison with discrete modelling approaches
