About this book

This book elucidates the most recent and highly original developments in the fields of micro- and nanomechanics and the corresponding homogenization techniques that can be reliably adopted and applied in determining the local properties, as well as the linear and nonlinear effective properties of the final architecture of these complex composite structures. Specifically, this volume, divided into three main sections—Fundamentals, Modeling, and Applications—provides recent developments in the mathematical framework of micro- and nanomechanics, including Green’s function and Eshelby’s inclusion problem, molecular mechanics, molecular dynamics, atomistic based continuum, multiscale modeling, and highly localized phenomena such as microcracks and plasticity. It is a compilation of the most recent efforts by a group of the world’s most talented and respected researchers. Ideal for graduate students in aerospace, mechanical, civil, material science, life sciences, and biomedical engineering, researchers, practicing engineers, and consultants, the book provides a unified approach in compiling micro- and nano-scale phenomena.
