Journal Club Theme of December 2011: Mechanics of Porous Materials

Porous materials can be created by a variety of methods and exhibit properties that are advantageous in certain applications, e.g. insulation, energy absorption, and core materials in sandwich panels. As the length scale of the pores/ligaments is reduced below one micron, size effects arise and cause changes in the deformation mechanisms that operate in the ligament material. The mechanical properties can change dramatically, especially for so-called “nanoporous metals”, which have pores and ligaments as small as a few nanometers.

Acurate Size Measurements of Nano Particles and Nano Pores Make Mechanical Understanding Easy

Encouraged by its current and prospective customers, Ebatco’s Nano Analysis and Testing Laboratory (NAT Lab) has expanded its nano/micro scale analytical and measurement capabilities significantly. More than ever before, customers can gain insights and comprehension of what is going on and why it has happened at the nano/micro scale.

ASME IMECE08 Minisymposium on Mechanics of Nanoporous Materials

This symposium will provide a forum for researchers to discuss the most recent developments in the synthesis, characterization and applications of various nanoporous materials systems such as nanoporous thin films and coatings, with a special focus on the various mechanics issues of this special class of materials.

When: Oct. 31-Nov. 6, 2008 in Boston, MA

Deadline for abstract submission: March 3, 2008
