Nano and Cell Mechanics: Fundamentals and Frontiers
Research in nano and cell mechanics has received much attentionfrom the scientific community as a result of society needs andgovernment initiatives to accelerate developments in materials,manufacturing, electronics, medicine and healthcare, energy, andthe environment. Engineers and scientists are currently engaging inincreasingly complex scientific problems that requireinterdisciplinary approaches. In this regard, studies in this fielddraw from fundamentals in atomistic scale phenomena, biology,statistical and continuum mechanics, and multiscale modeling andexperimentation. As a result, contributions in these areas arespread over a large number of specialized journals, which promptedthe Editors to assemble this book.
Nano and Cell Mechanics: Fundamentals and Frontiersbrings together many of the new developments in the field for thefirst time, and covers fundamentals and frontiers in mechanics toaccelerate developments in nano- and bio-technologies.
• Provides an overview of recent advances in nano and cellmechanics.
• Covers experimental, analytical, and computational toolsused to investigate biological and nanoscale phenomena.
• Covers fundamentals and frontiers in mechanics toaccelerate developments in nano- and bio-technologies.
• Examines applications in materials, manufacturing,electronics, medicine and healthcare.
Nano and Cell Mechanics: Fundamentals and Frontiers iswritten by internationally recognized experts in theoretical andapplied mechanics, applied physics, chemistry, and biology. It isan invaluable reference for graduate students of nano- andbio-technologies, researchers in academia and industry who areworking in nano and cell mechanics, and practitioners who areinterested in learning about the latest analysis tools. The bookcan also serve as a text for graduate courses in theoretical andapplied mechanics, mechanical engineering, materials science, andapplied physics.
