This book presents a selection of cutting-edge methods that allow readers to obtain novel models for nonlinear solid mechanics. Today, engineers need more accurate techniques for modeling solid body mechanics, chiefly due to innovative methods like additive manufacturing-for example, 3D printing-but also due to miniaturization. This book focuses on the formulation of continuum and discrete models for complex materials and systems, and especially the design of metamaterials. It gathers outstanding papers from the international conference IcONSOM 2019
Bilen Emek Abali is after studying and working at the universities in Istanbul, Munich, Berlin, and Berkeley, currently, B. E. Abali is working as an affiliated researcher at the Ghent University in Belgium. A rigorous scientific and teaching expertise he has obtained over the years as a consequence of working and lecturing in several continents. Among others, he has sponsored courses in mechanics, composite materials, numerical methods, and multiphysics simulations. His first research monograph has been published in Springer entitled as Computational Reality, presenting thermodynamical derivation of coupled phenomena involving thermomechanics with electromagnetism in solid bodies and fluids as well as their computation via the finite element method with the aid of open-source codes developed under the FEniCS project.
