Damage Assessment of Nanostructures
In this paper the damage assessment of nanostructures is discussed. As an example we assess the damage of nanobeams with non destructive dynamical resonance or destructive tensile tests: a small number of nanocracks, i.e., ~10, with length of ~1nm, is accordingly estimated.
