Call for abstracts - Society of Engineering Science 2019 - "Multiscale mechanics of porous and nanostructured materials"

Dear colleagues,

We are currently inviting abstract submissions to the symposium “Multiscale mechanics of porous and nanostructured materials” at the Society of Engineering Science (SES) meeting that will be hosted at Washington University in St. Louis on October 13-15, 2019.

Multiscale properties of porous and nanostructured materials are a complex function of their chemical composition and textural attributes across length scales. To address this complexity and elucidate the composition-structure-property relations, researchers have developed a diverse set of computational and theoretical tools at the interface of physics, chemistry, mechanics and material science. This symposium calls for interdisciplinary research on a wide range of multiscale porous and nanostructured materials including but not limited to infrastructure (e.g. cementitious, bituminous), polymeric (e.g. nanocomposites, thin films, and gels), geological (e.g. clays, shale), biological (e.g. bone, wood), and other engineering materials (e.g. zeolites, metal-organic frameworks). Physical properties of interest are stiffness, strength, toughness, failure behaviors, glass transition, creep, heat and mass transport, permeability, and other relevant properties emerging across time and length scales. We welcome experimental contributions, theoretical and computational modeling including data-driven approaches, as well as other innovative tools for characterization and design of porous and nanostructured materials.

The deadline for submission is April 30, 2019. To submit an abstract please go to (ours is symposium 7.9 under track 7 “Mechanics and Physics of Materials”)  


We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis!
