Trends in Computational Namechanics reviews recent advances in analytical and computational modeling frameworks to describe the mechanics of materials on scales ranging from the atomistic, through the microstructure or transitional, and up to the continuum. The book presents new approaches in the theory of nasystems, recent developments in theoretical and computational methods for studying problems in which multiple length and/or time scales must be simultaneously resolved, as well as example applications in namechanics. This title will be a useful tool of reference for professionals, graduates and undergraduates interested in Computational Chemistry and Physics, Materials Science, Natechlogy.
Dr. Traian Dumitrica received a doctorate in physics from Texas A&M University in 2000. Since then he has worked at Rice University, Freie Universitaet Berlin, and Universitaet Kassel. He joined the University of Minnesota faculty in 2005. His research focuses in understanding the mechanical properties of materials using atomistic computational methods. System of interest include carbon nanotubes, silicon nanoparticles, and coherent phonons in semiconductors.
