Memo

This conference will bring together people working in the field of nano- and micromechanical testing in materials research. The mechanical behavior of materials is typically controlled by processes that span several length and time scales. There has been a rapid expansion of available testing strategies in recent years to examine elastic, plastic, fracture and fatigue properties at multiple length scales, with control of loading mode, temperature and atmosphere, including imaging in real-time. This conference aims to bring together the research community working in the field of experimental mechanics, with a focus on nano- and micro-mechanical testing and a special emphasis on bridging observations across multiple length scales, particularly dealing with: The implementation of the tests, including testing under service conditions (in operando); The use of different spectroscopy techniques (photon, phonon, electron, ion, or combinations), i.e., correlated microscopy, to understand deformation processes in advanced structural materials; The use of in-situ deformation studies in SEM, TEM, AFM, optical microscopy, X-Ray, neutron and electron characterization (both imaging and diffraction); Observing phenomena at different length scales, from processes occurring at the atomic scale (i.e., dislocation nucleation) to the mesoscale (from oligocrystals to polycrystals); in this sense, contributions bridging observations across multiple length scales are especially welcome; The post processing of the data, including full field measurements by image and volume correlation, as well as time-resolved experiments to unravel dynamic processes far from equilibrium; Integration with modeling for mechanistic discovery, experimental interpretation, parameter calibration, or model validation. Applications of these nano- and micromechanical testing methods have become more and more important in all fields of materials research like metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, coatings, composites, and biomaterials and will improve our understanding of the complex mechanical behavior of advanced materials. Besides hardness, the visco-elastic behavior or time dependent properties, phase transformations, fracture phenomena and toughness can be quantitatively evaluated with the new test methods. For many applications, the temperature and rate dependence and other environmental parameters such as hydrogen are of great interest. These nano- and micromechanical testing techniques will help in the development of design concepts for materials based on their local mechanical properties. This conference will bring together people working in the field of nano- and micromechanical testing in materials research. It will provide a forum for discussion of the latest activities in application of nano- and micromechanical testing methods. The conference is a continuation of the ECI series: 2005 – Instrumented Indentation Testing (Crete, Greece), 2009 – Nanomechanical Testing (Barga – Tuscany, Italy), 2011 – Nano- and Micromechanical Testing in Materials Research and Development III (Canary Islands, Spain), 2013 – Nano- and Mircomechanical Testing in Materials Research and Development IV (Olhao, Portugal), 2015 – Nanomechanical Testing in Materials Research and Development V (Albufeira, Portugal). 2017 – Nanomechanical Testing in Materials Research and Development VI (Dubrovnik, Croatia)
