NMM 2017 - Nano & Macro Mechanics 2017

Editorial, Foreword


The 8h conference Nano & Macro Mechanics was held in Prague, in September 21, 2017. The conference was organized by Department of Mechanics, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague.

The main objective of the conference is to bring together researchers and engineers devoting their work to computing and experimental mechanics in different areas of engineering applications on a common platform.

The conference objectives were following:

  • Testing of building materials at the nano and macro level.
  • Destructive and non-destructive methods for determining the mechanical properties of buildings materials.
  • Relationships between material parameters at nano and macro level.
  • Numerical simulations of behavior of structures and materials.
  • Computational and experimental dynamics and mechanics.
  • Material research for steel, buildings materials, glass, woods, textiles and composites.
  • Analyses of constructions.
  • Computational methods for analyses of the constructions.

 We strongly believe that NMM 2017 has a significant impact on the development of contemporary analytical, numerical and experimental methods in mechanics and will also create an opportunity for opening a forum for discussion and collaboration among the participants.

This Issue of Acta Polytechnica Proceedings contains the papers presented in the topic of the conference on Nano & Macro Mechanics 2017. All papers were reviewed by two members of the conference scientific board.

We would like to express our special thanks to all members of scientific and organizing committee, session chairperson, reviewers of papers and conference participants for making this conference successful.
