Continuum, Micro-Scale and Nano-Scale Material Modeling and Characterization

James Chen, James D. Lee,  Xianqiao Wang

This mini-symposium will address the modeling, simulation and testing of physical phenomena at atomic scale, continuum scale or across various multiple length/time scales. In particular, this mini-symposium is devoted to computational and experimental investigations of multiscale and/or multiphysics problems. Contributions from researchers in the fields of solid/fluid mechanics, material science/engineering are cordially invited.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Computational mechanics

* Fluid-structure interaction

* Biomechanics and biomaterials

* Shape memory alloy, nanocomposites and smart materials

* Thermo-Electro-Mechanical coupling

* Microcontinuum theories

* Electromagnetic e_ects

* Transport in microscale and multiscale uid dynamics

* Heat transfer at nano/micrp/meso scales

* Visco-Elasticity and Visco-Plasticity
