Mini - symposium Title

MS008  Micromechanics Modeling of Solids


Micromechanics encompasses mechanics related to microstructures of materials. The method employed is a continuum theory of elasticity yet its applications cover a broad area relating to the mechanical behavior of materials: plasticity, fracture and fatigue, constitutive equations, composite materials, polycrystals, etc. Although these subjects are traditionally treated by means of a powerful and unified method which is called the “eigenstrain method”, new topics are emerging constantly. Targeted research may cover a range of length scales from nano, over micro and meso to full product/structure level, with a focus on engineering embracing high performance applications spanning from low volume/high cost to high volume/low cost engineering material development. Explorations deal with design, research and development studies, experimental investigations, theoretical analysis and fabrication techniques relevant to the application of solids in load-bearing components for assemblies, ranging from individual components such as plates and shells to complete solid structures. We cordially invite contributions from various branches of micromechanics of solids.
