Prager Medal Symposium in Honor of George Weng
Micromechanics, Composites and Multifunctional Materials
Dimitris Lagoudas, Texas A&M University,
Abhijit Bhattacharyya, University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
The symposium will consist of invited presentations that include, but are not limited to, micro and nano mechanics, interface effects, thermodynamics, phase transition, effective properties of composites, shape memory alloys, ferroelectric crystals and thin films, magnetoelectric coupling, multiferroic composites, nanodielectrics for energy storage, energy harvesting, electrocaloric effects, metamaterials, biomaterials, nanocrystalline materials, and mechanical and transport properties of carbon nanotube- and graphene-based composites.
Papers are by invitation only. All presenters are encouraged to submit full-length articles for consideration of publication in a special issue of Acta Mechanica.
