Multiscale Modeling and Characterization of Multiphysics for Nano, Bio and Smart Materials

James Lee, The George Washington University
Jiaoyan Li, The George Washington University


This mini-symposium will address the modeling, simulation and testing of physical phenomena at atomic scale, continuum scale or across various multiple length/time scales. In particular, this mini-symposium is devoted to computational and experimental investigations of multiscale and/or multiphysics problems, especially thermo-mechanical coupling phenomena. Contributions from researchers in the fields of solid/fluid mechanics, material science/engineering are cordially invited.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Computational solid mechanics

* Fluid-structure interaction

* Biomechanics and biomaterials

* Shape memory materials, nanocomposites and smart materials

* Thermo-Mechanical coupling

* Microcontinuum theories

* Electromagnetic effects

* Heat transfer at nano/micr0/meso scales

* Visco-Elasticity and Visco-Plasticity
