Preface

Stéphane P.A. Bordas

This is the 47th volume of Advances in Applied Mechanics. I would like to sincerely thank all authors of Volume 47 for their dedicated work which made this issue possible. Over its four chapters, this book deals with various dissipative phenomena in materials. These phenomena are approached from all three theoretical, numerical, and experimental angles. The chapters address contact and nanoindentation, multiscale modeling of dissipative processes, damage, plasticity, and multifield modeling/simulation of fracture.

Not only do these problems offer a wide and rich field for theoretical and experimental investigations, but they are also central to the design of more durable, sustainable, and energy-efficient structures, ...
