About this book

This book provides a comprehensive reference for the studies of mechanical properties of materials over multiple length and time scales. The topics include nanomechanics, micromechanics, continuum mechanics, mechanical property measurements, and materials design. The handbook employs a consistent and systematic approach offering readers a user friendly reference ideal for frequent consultation. It is appropriate for an audience at of graduate students, faculties, researchers, and professionals in the fields of Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, and Aerospace Engineering.

About the authors

Professor Chun-Hway Hsueh received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1981. Before joining National Taiwan University in 2010 as a Distinguished Professor, he was a Distinguished R&D Staff at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Professor Hsueh’s formal training is analytical modeling. He has developed analytical models and derived closed-form solutions for many complex problems to identify key parameters in controlling properties/performance of materials and to provide guidelines in the material design. His work has been extensively cited, and he was listed as ISI highly cited researcher in Materials Science in 2002. Since joining National Taiwan University, his work has been extended to applied research. His current research work includes metallic glasses, shape-memory alloys, high-entropy alloys, nanoindentation, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, plasmonics nanodevices, etc. He has authored or co-authored more than 250 scientific journal papers. Professor Hsueh is a Fellow of the American Society for Metals (ASM), the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), and the World Innovation Foundation (WIF). Currently, he serves as Associate Editor of seven international journals.
