ECI Conference on Nanomechanical Testing October 1-7

October 1, 2017

Event Description

ECI Conference

This conference will bring together people working in the field of nano- and micromechanical testing in materials research. It will provide a forum for discussion of the latest activities in application of nano- and micromechanical testing methods. The conference is a continuation of the ECI series.

The major topics to be discussed are:

  • Fundamental studies in mechanical and indentation testing (size effects, phase transformations…)
  • FIB/lithography based nano- and micromechanical testing
  • In-situ techniques (synchrotron, electron microscopy, light microscopy…)
  • Deformation mechanisms
  • Modeling with focus on molecular dynamics, discrete dislocation dynamics and crystal plasticity
  • Combination of modelling and experiments for prediction of macroscopic behavior based on local testing
  • Novel preparation methods for micro- and nanoscale objects suitable for mechanical testing
  • Testing of nanostructures, thin films and coatings
  • Fatigue and fracture testing
  • Testing of polymeric and biomaterials
  • Testing of metals, ceramics and composites
  • Testing at higher temperatures and in different environments
  • Future directions
