Engineering Plasticity from Macroscale to Nanoscale
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
These proceedings comprise 139 papers presented at the 6th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Engineering Plasticity and Its Applications (AEPA2002), held from the 2nd to the 6th of December 2002 at the University of Sydney, Australia.
They will bring the reader up-to-date with the latest research effort on a broad range of fronts in engineering plasticity; at scales ranging from nano- to macro-. The specific subjects, discussed here in detail, include constitutive modeling, damage and fracture mechanisms, dynamics and rate-dependent behaviors, energy absorption, fatigue and cyclic loading, forming, machining, micro-characterization, nano-mechanics, phase transformations, polymer and composite behaviors, strength, deformation, structural stability and superplasticity. This book is an essential reference for those working in the field.
