One Line Description
The book uniquely offers a comprehensive view of cutting-edge research on materials engineering and modeling.

The book is written for materials scientists. engineers and technologists from diverse backgrounds across chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, medical science, pharmacy, environmental technology, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering.

The engineering of materials with advanced features is driving the research towards the design of innovative high-performance materials. New materials often deliver the best solutions for structural applications, precisely contributing to the finest combination of mechanical properties and low weight. Furthermore, these materials mimic the principles of nature, leading to a new class of structural materials which include biomimetic composites, natural hierarchical materials and smart materials. Computational modeling approaches are valuable tools which are complementary to experimental techniques and provide significant information at the microscopic level and explain the properties of materials and their existence itself.
This book, Advanced Engineering Materials and Modeling, has been designed in such a way as to cover aspects of both the use of experimental and computational approaches for materials engineering and fabrication.
Specifically, the materials section of the book discusses in-depth experimental characterization of materials and some of their applications relevant to the construction, paper and healthcare sectors. On the computational and modeling side, a set of chapters are devoted to fabrication using atomistic and finite-element-based approaches including first-principles-based modeling approaches to predict the structure and electronic properties of extended systems. The remaining chapters cover the theoretical approaches to understanding hybrid materials and stochastic electromagnets and to modeling complex processes like tunneling of superluminal photons.
