WG1: Size Effects

There are no upcoming events at this time

WG 1 focuses on size effects in the mechanical behavior of the broadest material spectrum. The goal is to define “nanomechanical quanta” across and beyond the MecaNano community.

The members of WG 1 share their data, models, perspectives and experiences on size effects, characteristic length scales, processing, properties and characterization technologies. Synergies are fostered within WG 1 and across MecaNano via periodic scientific and network meetings, and with online pitching events, in which members introduce their expertise, ideas and facilities.
