About the book
MECHANICS OF FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES discusses research activities in applications spanning over mechanical, aerospace, civil, materials, biomedical, nuclear, naval, arctic and electronics engineering. The topics covered are mechanics of functional and smart structures, mechanics of functional materials, structural health monitoring, mechanics of composite and functionally graded materials and structures, biomechanics, nanomechanics, fatigue and fracture, impact, plasticity and contact, dynamics and stability, and fluid structure interaction. The chapters in this volume are a reflection of the diverse research activities in this area and represent the recent developments in the fundamental understanding of behavior of functional materials and structures, as well as its applications to modern technology.
The topics will be of interest to researchers, scientists, academicians and professionals working in the national laboratories and industries in applications ranging from nanotechnology to space technology.
