OnDemand Webinar Series

Mechanical Behavior of Nanocomposites

Jan 23, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Jan 23, 2019 1:30pm


By engineering the length scales, morphology, crystallography and chemistry of interfaces, nanocomposites can deliver mechanical properties that exceed what could be achieved from a single-phase material alone. The January, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin  highlights recent developments in mechanics of nanocomposites that are composed of a combination of metallic, polymer, biological, and ceramic materials and outline the challenges and opportunities for future research directions.

This webinar expanded on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.
