  • New techniques for multiscale modeling, testing and experimentation
  • Applications in new materials for aircraft, automotive, defense systems, bridges, buildings, and biomedicine
  • Covers virtually all engineered materials: composites, polymers, films, metal alloys and foams, ceramics, concrete, smart materials, nanomaterials, geomaterials and biomaterials, and many natural materials–cells, bone, soil, and geological formations.

This book offers over 400 never before published and rigorously refereed papers demonstrating the connections between nanoscale phenomena and the critical properties of dozens of engineered and natural materials-—from polymer composites to human bone. Information is presented on new techniques for studying and quantifying the behavior of materials at nanoscale levels and linking this data to macroscale properties such as strength, fatigue, and failure points. The techniques include novel experiments and uses of instrumentation, as well as modeling and numerical methods. Virtually all the analyses in this book are offered here for the first time. They include information of value for materials investigators in defense, civil engineering, biomaterials, and transportation.
