Session 4: Mechanical properties of amorphous solids
This session will cover the recent progress in understanding the mechanical properties of amorphous solids, including but not limited to oxide glasses, chalcogenide glasses, metallic glasses, and soft glassy materials. The deformation, wear, and fracture mechanisms under various testing conditions―such as tension, compression, indentation, and scratch―and across various time and spatial scales will be included. The similarity and distinctions between various glassy systems will be solicited. Experimental and computational studies will be included.
