• 10th European Solid Mechanics Conference – ESMC2018, Bologna, Italy, 2-6 July 2018

    The 10th European Solid Mechanics Conference, organized by the University of Trento and the University of Bologna, will be held in  Bologna, under the auspices of EUROMECH, during July 2-6, 2018.

    The ESMC is the major event for the solids mechanics community in Europe and provides a unique forum for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art in the mechanics of solids, on new concepts and ideas and to identify new research directions. The General (contributed) Sessions for this conference have been organized into nine main areas. In addition, more than 50 Mini-Symposia will be organized in a range of specialized topics.

    Focus on one Mini-symposium: 4-1 - Experimental Micromechanics and Nanomechanics

    Organizers: Gerhard Dehm (Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung), Jon Molina-Aldareguía (IMDEA Materials Institute), Miguel Monclus (IMDEA Materials Institute)

    Description: Micro and Nanomechanical testing methods have become extremely important to characterize the mechanical behavior of materials. There has been a rapid expansion of available testing strategies in recent years to examine elastic, plastic, and fracture properties of materials at small scales, with control of loading mode, temperature and atmosphere, including imaging in real-time. This symposium aims to bring together the rapidly growing micro- and nanomechanical testing research community, particularly in the areas of:

    1. Nanoindentation
    2. Testing of nanostructures, thin-films and coatings
    3. Interface phenomena
    4. FIB/lithography based nano- and micromechanical testing
    5. Time-resolved in situ SEM, EBSD, AFM, X-Ray/synchrotron and TEM mechanical testing
    6. Size effects in mechanical properties
    7. Deformation mechanisms in small volumes
    8. Fracture at small length scales

    Deadline for abstract submission : November 15, 2017
