Materials Structure & Micromechanics of Fracture VI
The main goal of these proceedings was to demonstrate the use of a variety of multi-scale approaches, ranging from the atomistic to the macroscopic, and in this it succeeds admirably. The special collection includes more than 130 peer-reviewed papers on atomistic, mesoscopic, macroscopic and multiscale approaches.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Over 130 selected papers explore fundamental relations between structural and mechanical characteristics of materials using atomistic, mesoscopic, macroscopic, and multiscale approaches. The topics include anomalous transformation-induced deformation in gum metal, simulating and modeling the crack path of biomaterials, the effect of atomic hydrogen concentration in the study of the adsorption of graphene, the plasma nitriding of deep narrow cavities, microcracks and mechanical behavior of the corio-epidermal junction of equine hoof, creep in iron-aluminum alloys with added niobium and carbon, the mechanical characterization of ancient Egyptian mortars, and the influence of particle shape on crack behavior in polymeric composites.
