Mechanics - Microstructure - Corrosion Coupling: Concepts, Experiments, Modeling and Cases presents the state-of-the-art on scientific and technological developments relating to the durability of materials and structures subjected to mechanical and environmental stress in industries such as energy, aeronautics, chemistry and oil. Experimental, theoretical and numerical aspects are tackled at different scales, providing readers with the most advanced tools and scientific approaches to apprehend coupling phenomena by understanding associated mechanisms, identifying variables of the first order, and proposing strategies to control and/or extend the lifespan of structures in a multi-process coupling situation. In addition, the book presents the latest advances in research in these areas (hydrogen embrittlement, stress corrosion, fatigue, etc.), especially in the consideration of the multi-scale aspect of the phenomena in the implementation of dedicated experiments. Reviews the status of scientific and technological developments related to the durability of materials Addresses experimental, theoretical and numerical aspects at different scales Provides the most advanced tools and scientific approaches Focuses on the latest advances, such as hydrogen embrittlement, stress corrosion, fatigue, and more
Mechanical and Electro-chemical Interactions under Tribocorrosion: From Measurements to Modelling for Building a Relevant Monitoring Approach looks at progress in the field of tribocorrosion. The work is a result of the efforts of the European tribocorrosion community gathered under the auspices of the European Corrosion Federation (EFC) within WP18 Tribocorrosion. In addition to the handbook, Testing Tribocorrosion of Passivating Materials Supporting Research and industrial Innovation published in 2012, this release describes the latest scientific approaches recognized and validated experimentally to address tribocorrosion. Sections look at the phenomena of coupling through an understanding of the associated mechanisms and how to identify variables. Final sections cover strategies to control and/or extend the life of structures in a multi-process coupling situation and an in-depth description of the current state-of-the-art on modeling approaches of tribocorrosion. Reviews the multidisciplinary basics of tribocorrosion Includes insights into novel experimental approaches Provides insights into advanced modeling techniques of tribocorrosion Looks at the implication of results in the development of the monitoring of tribocorrosion
Chronicling the 11th US–France Mechanics and physics of solids at macro- and nano-scales symposium, organized by ICACM (International Center for Applied Computational Mechanics) in Paris, June 2018, this book addresses the breadth of issues raised. It covers a comprehensive range of scientific and technological topics (from elementary plastic events in metals and materials in harsh environments to bio-engineered and bio-mimicking materials), offering a representative perspective on state-of-the-art research and materials. Expounding on the issues related to mesoscale modeling, the first part of the book addresses the representation of plastic deformation at both extremes of the scale – between nano- and macro- levels. The second half of the book examines the mechanics and physics of soft materials, polymers and materials made from fibers or molecular networks.

This book highlights the failure theories and evaluation techniques of thermal barrier coatings, covering the thermal-mechanical–chemical coupling theories, performance and damage characterization techniques, and related evaluations. Thermal barrier coatings are the key thermal protection materials for high-temperature components in advanced aeroengines. Coating spallation is a major technical bottleneck faced by researchers. The extremely complex microstructure, diverse service environments, and failure behaviors bring challenges to the spallation analysis in terms of the selective use of mechanical theories, experimental methods, and testing platforms. In the book, the authors provide a systematic summary of the latest research and technological advances and present their insights and findings in the past couple of decades. This book is not only suitable for researchers and engineers in thermal barrier coatings and related fields but also a good reference for upper-undergraduate and postgraduate students of materials science and mechanics majors.
