The third book in a series on heterogeneous materials, this volume offers integrated approaches to the measurement and modeling of materials using approaches from materials science, physics, mechanics, biology and other disciplines. The volume contains 289 chapters presenting original research on the connections among the nano-, micro-, and mesoscale mechanical properties and behaviors of many different types of engineered and natural heterogeneous materials. The book contains a wealth of never published multiscale data on materials loading behaviors, plasticity, creep, damage, fracture and failure. A separate section is devoted to the design and functionalization of materials using multiscale data and techniques.
