SPECIAL SESSION 4
NANOMATERIALS (SS4)
The forefront of nanostructured materials continues to evolve with the exploration of new concepts and methodologies towards the development of new processes of sintering, manufacturing systems, structural characterization, and property testing techniques, along with the utilization of theoretical modeling and simulation tools.
This Session will focus on experimental, theoretical, and computational studies of nanomaterials in the form of bulk, thin films, coatings, and tubes/fibers. These studies will include, but are not limited to, the following subject areas.



TOPICS

  • Synthesis of Nanomaterials,
  • Nanocomposites,
  • Nano Mechanics,
  • Novel Characterization methods,
  • Mechanical/optical/electrical properties of nanomaterials and Modeling and numerical simulation of nano- systems.

Contributions on all aspects of nanosystems, nanomaterials, nanomechanics will be welcome.
