9780470018514: Nano Mechanics and Materials: Theory, Multiscale Methods and Applications

Nanotechnology is a progressive research and development topic with large amounts of venture capital and government funding being invested worldwide. Nano mechanics, in particular, is the study and characterization of the mechanical behaviour of individual atoms, systems and structures in response to various types of forces and loading conditions.

This text, written by respected researchers in the field, informs researchers and practitioners about the fundamental concepts in nano mechanics and materials, focusing on their modelling via multiple scale methods and techniques. The book systematically covers the theory behind multi-particle and nanoscale systems, introduces multiple scale methods, and finally looks at contemporary applications in nano-structured and bio-inspired materials.

From the Back Cover:

The ability to synthesize and analyse the properties of nanoscale objects has revolutionized a wide range of advanced biomedical, mechanical, electrical, smart material and military engineering applications. Nano mechanics, the study and characterization of the mechanical behaviour of individual atoms, systems and structures in response to various loading conditions, has fuelled this progressive technology. In particular, multiple scale modelling methods have allowed engineers to gain a better understanding of nano materials.

Written by respected researchers in the field, this book examines the fundamental concepts in nano mechanics and materials, focusing on their modelling via multiple scale methods and techniques. Nano Mechanics and Materials: Theory, Multiscale Methods and Applications also provides: 

  • information on the foundations of molecular forces, particle systems and lattice mechanics;
  • the theory, formulae and implementation of current multiple scale modelling techniques;
  • analysis of mechanical, biological, self-healing and nano/bio composite materials and systems;
  • a supplementary website containing accompanying PowerPoint lecture notes.

A comprehensive tutorial on the subject for practising electronics engineers, materials scientists and researchers developing nanoscale materials and applications, this text is also an up-to-date reference for graduates taking courses on nano mechanics or nanotechnology.
