About this book


Macro-Micro Theory on Multifield Coupling Behavior of Heterogeneous Materials discusses high performance structures using macro-micro theories and a micromechanics approach.

The monograph is intended for specialists in materials science and applied mechanics.

Qing-Hua Qin is a professor at The Australian National University, Canberra, and has been in the area of applied mechanics for more than two decades. Professor Qing-Sheng Yang at Beijing University of Technology focuses his research interests at composites micromechanics, structural analysis and multifield coupling behavior of polymers and biomaterials.
