Size Effects in Plasticity: From Macro to Nano provides concise explanations of all available methods in this area, from atomistic simulation, to non-local continuum models to capture size effects. It then compares their applicability to a wide range of research scenarios. This essential guide addresses basic principles, numerical issues and computation, applications and provides code which readers can use in their own modeling projects. Researchers in the fields of computational mechanics, materials science and engineering will find this to be an ideal resource when they address the size effects observed in deformation mechanisms and strengths of various materials. Provides a comprehensive reference on the field of size effects and a review of mechanics of materials research in all scales Explains all major methods of size effects simulation, including non-local continuum models, non-local crystal plasticity, discrete dislocation methods and molecular dynamics Includes source codes that readers can use in their own projects
