As the first comprehensive introduction to the nanomechanics of materials, this text/reference will provide the reader with the fundamental theories underlying nano-scale mechanics and then go on to show how this knowledge is being applied today's industries and products. The authors, research engineers at GE, are both well recognized in the field of nanotechnolgy. They will enlist the contributions of some of the most distinguished engineers and scientist presently working on nanomechanics and new applications for this technology.Engineering students will find the first book-length work available anywhere on this subject, with an easy-to-follow step-step sequence used in each chapter, starting with the background theory on the mechanical property in question, followed by methods for mathematically modeling that property, and finally offering emerging research topics. Each chapter will have end of chapter problems for further study. Professional engineers will find this as a single-source compendium on all major topics being researched today in the field of nanomechanics and materials applications. Ample resources will be provided for further reading and finding expanded coverage of individual topics. Combines overview of essential physical mechanics at the nano-scale with current and emerging applications in electronics, photonics and basic materials properties. Explores fundamental and technological aspects of nanomechanics-from scale-dependent effects to the effect of deformations and strains on the band structure of quantum dots. Introduces such applications areas as mechanics of nanocomposites, strain and electronic properties of quantum dots, mechanics of self-assembly and ab initio simulations of nanoclusters. Sequential flow of topics and uniform chapter structures will allow use as advanced textbook for courses in nanomechanics and nanomaterials.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
