    This book presents the latest developments and applications of micromechanics and nanomechanics. It particularly focuses on some recent applications and impact areas of micromechanics and nanomechanics that have not been discussed in traditional micromechanics and nanomechanics books on metamaterials, micromechanics of ferroelectric/piezoelectric, electromagnetic materials, micromechanics of interface, size effects and strain gradient theories, computational and experimental nanomechanics, multiscale simulations and theories, soft matter composites, and computational homogenization theory. This book covers analytical, experimental, as well as computational and numerical approaches in depth.

    "Micromechanics and nanomechanics are major fields that link mechanics, materials science, physics, and chemistry and have been at the forefront in the development of advanced materials. This handbook, written by leaders in their various fields, presents snapshots of recent advances in the fields of micromechanics and nanomechanics through 30 well-written chapters. It is very suitable for beginning and advanced researchers and for readers just wishing to become up to date on some new and interesting topics: For the beginner the chapters are clear enough to understand advanced topics and ample references are provided for further study; the advanced researcher wishing to be updated on a possibly unfamiliar topic will find that the chapters provide a good start and give sources for further research. The scope of the handbook leads to techniques that are appropriate to various length scales, ranging from the atomistic to the continuum, and the notations used appear to be standard. Overall the handbook represents a valuable contribution to the literature of micromechanics and nanomechanics. This reviewer is impressed by the scope of the materials presented and the careful writing that covers these advanced topics."
