Objectives and topics:
of nanoengineering technologies and creation of nanomaterials opened
new perspectives for a number of areas of industry and everyday life.
These materials demonstrate increased strength, toughness,
biocompatibility, and can ensure higher service properties, reliability
and lifetime of devices and systems.
Having nanostructuring and
nanoengineering technologies as the tools to enhance the service
properties of devices and machines, we are faced with the question –
which structures of nano-enhanced materials should we aim at in order to
ensure the requirements? To make the development and optimization of
nanostructured materials realizable in practice and efficient
computational models and software codes for the virtual, numerical
testing of these materials are necessary.
In order to develop
computational modeling tools for the analysis of nanostructured metals, a
European FP7 research project "Virtual Nanotitanium" (VINAT) has been
started in 2011. This project is carried out in collaboration with the
State Contract № 16.523.12.3002 funded by the Russian Ministry of
Education and Science. The International Conference is organized in the
framework of this project, and will cover the following topics:
Computational models of mechanical behavior and physical properties of
nanomaterials, linking their nanostructural and service properties, 
-  Nanoscale physics reflected by continuum or force fields models: assumptions and limitations, 
-  Continuum mechanics, molecular dynamics and quantum ab-initio methods as tools for virtual testing of nanomaterials, 
- Multiscale modeling and coupling of scales, 
- Thin films (including a special session organized by the Virtual Institute of Nano Films), 
 Nanocrystalline metals, metal nanoparticle assemblies, nanostructured
shape memory alloys, carbon nanomaterials, biocompatible materials and
peculiarities of their modeling, 
-  Experimental validation and practical applications of computational models of nanomaterials.
