Ali H. Nayfeh passed away

Ali Hasan Nayfeh

Professor Ali H. Nayfeh passed away today Monday (March 27, 2017) at his home in Amman, Jordan. He was the University Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Virginia Tech Wikipedia

We mourn Nayfeh's passing with deep sadness for the loss of a giant in dynamics and structural mechanics.

Strain Gradient Plasticity

Recently, there have been many strain gradient theories that are used for the interpretation of size effect at the micron and submicron length scales. The basic idea of these theories is the introduction of a first, or second (or both) gradients of strain or any internal state variable in the governing equations of classical theories.
