About these proceedings


The book contains invited lectures of the International Symposium Anisotropic Behaviour of Damaged Materials held in Krakow, Poland, September 9-11 2002. Eminent researchers and world experts in the field of damage mechanics provide recent achievements and the state of the art in the field. The book deals with the anisotropic damage mechanics with micromechanical aspects and thermo-mechanical coupling involved. The book both meets academic interest and practical application demands, especially concerning more advanced anisotropic models of materials and the transition from microscopic to macroscopic level.
