Micromechanics of Defects in Solids
This volume presents recent developments in the theory of defects and the mechanics of material forces. The book constitutes a selection of the contributions presented at the International Symposium on Defect and Material Mechanics (ISDMM2011), held inSeville,Spain, June 2011. The ISDMM series of symposia provides a rare and much needed forum for bringing together a diverse group of researchers from various areas ranging from theoretical, experimental and computational modeling of the mechanics of materials. The present volume constitutes a valuable snapshot of the field of the mechanics of materials and their defects, and a window to its many accomplishments, challenges and opportunities, and open questions. The volume is intended to motivate the young research community interested in the field.
