WG2: Experimental and Simulation Challenges

1st online-Symposium on Experimental and Simulation Challenges

We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to the 1st online-Symposium on Experimental and Simulation Challenges in MecaNano, that will be held on February 15th, 2024 from 9am to 12 pm. The symposium will include highlight presentations from Dr. Barbara Putz (Montanuniversität Leoben / EMPA Thun) and Dr. Jonathan Amodeo (CNRS, France)

Time slots for online presentations (Zoom) will be of 15 min, including 5 min discussion.

Please submit your abstract until January 22nd, 2024 by filling up the following form:


Owing to the limited time available, we cannot guarantee that your submission will be accepted for the current meeting. In the case of many applications, we are considering the possibility of organizing a second symposium shortly after the first.

Anyone will be able to join the online symposium. One does not need to submit an abstract to watch and join the discussions.

WG2 Experimental and simulation challenges The Action seeks to identify and promote the use of the most effective (robustness, highest throughput) experimental and simulation techniques.

Task 2.1 Define two hierarchically structured model materials and perform round-robin mechanical testing at the nano to meso scales

Task 2.2 Evaluate the performance and current limitations of the different experimental techniques for use at the different length scales (milestone 2.1)

Task 2.3 Identify nanomechanical methods suitable for standardization (beside nanoindentation)

Task 2.4 Evaluate the performance and current limitations of the different simulation techniques, favouring open-source solutions (milestone 2.2)

Task 2.5 Match the outcome of different simulations on model materials with experimental results from round robin tests and draw conclusions on the complementarity of both techniques 17

Task 2.6 Forecast cross-techniques advances (in situ operation, import of a given technique to different characterization tool…)

Task 2.7 Communicate users’ feedback and requests to SME instrument manufacturers about implementation of most timely advanced capabilities.
