Description

This book is an excellent primer for students to learn about physical properties, particularly mechanical properties of heterogeneous and multiphase materials and the cultivation of physical insight. Written by a prominent author who pioneered many of the concepts, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of current topics in new heterogenous materials. Topics covered include: - Principles of the mechanics of solid multiphase systems. - Role of heterogeneity and anisotropy in determining physical properties including elastic, dielectric, and piezoelectric properties. - Coupled fields; smart materials including piezoelectric materials and thermal actuators. - Applications in lightweight structures, ultra-strong materials, materials for protection of the body, and materials for the replacement of human tissues. - Materials with fibrous, lamellar, particulate, and cellular structures. - Lattice metamaterials. Extreme and unusual physical properties. - Heterogeneous materials of biological origin. - Metamaterials and biomimetic and bio-inspired materials.
