Multiscale Innovative Materials and Structures

Special Issue

A special issue of Meccanica (Springer, https://link.springer.com/journal/11012) will collect original, peer-reviewed contributions presented at the Workshop. The Special Issue aims at providing new insights in modelling and control of innovative structures and multiscale materials. Discovery and promotion of new knowledge about mechanical behaviours involving size effects and multiple characteristic scale lengths are encouraged. Unconventional responses of multiscale systems, nanostructures, metamaterials and smart devices for vibration control will be investigated from theoretical, computational and experimental perspectives. Topics in Nano-Science and Nano-Engineering, such as modelling and assessment of scale effects in nanostructures, are suggested as possible contributions. In-depth analysis of complex scale phenomena characterizing miniaturized electro-mechanical systems is encouraged. Further goals concern modelling of smart and innovative devices for structural control, isolation strategies and energy harvesting. New developments in vibration control techniques will be promoted. Applications of unconventional materials and innovative systems are expected as outcomes. The submission deadline for full papers is provided below. The submission of an article to this issue is not required to participate in the workshop.
