S4. Fundamentals of mechanical response

This symposium brings together researchers working on ceramics, glasses, and/or coatings where mechanical behavior is an important attribute of the application and where there is a need to improve basic understanding of mechanical phenomena. A special focus is placed on microscale and nanoscale phenomena in layered and complex systems as well as on the coupling of mechanical behavior to other phenomena, such as ion conduction.


Proposed session topics

  • Fracture
  • Environmental effects
  • Chemoelastic stresses
  • Mechanical behavior of hierarchical and layered structures
  • Contact damage and tribology
  • Small-scale mechanical phenomena


Symposium organizers

Invited Speakers

  • Jessica Krogstad, University of Illinois
  • Brian Sheldon, Brown University
