Mechanics of Crystalline Nanostructures Symposium at 49th SES Meeting (Abstract Deadline: April 2, 2012)

Tim Rupert's picture

Dear Colleagues,


We would like to bring your attention to the Mechanics of Crystalline Nanostructures Symposium at the 49th Society of Engineering Science (SES) Meeting at Georgia Tech on October 10-12, 2012.   


As the characteristic features, either internal microstructure or external geometry, of engineering materials
are reduced to the nanoscale, unique physical mechanisms begin to control
deformation and unexpected mechanical properties begin to emerge.
  To enable the implementation of these
advanced materials, this symposium focuses on recent advances in the
understanding of the unique mechanical behavior and deformation physics of
crystalline nanostructures.
  Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:


  • studies connecting nanoscale features to
    deformation (plasticity, damage, fracture, fatigue, and creep)
  • novel multi-scale modeling and simulation techniques
  • advances in materials theory
  • studies of interfacial phenomena
  • innovative characterization and mechanical testing techniques



 Abstracts can be submitted by
going to the conference website and selecting Symposium IV.14 Mechanics of Crystalline Nanostructures.  The deadline for abstract submission is April 2, 2012.


We hope to see you all in Atlanta this fall.
