About this Book

This title brings together a variety of papers presented at the 9th annual Meso meeting in 2007. The topics selected for Meso 2007 are designed to illustrate the relation of thresholds to multiscaling:

  • Flow through capillary tubes in contrast to pipes
  • Laminar and turbulent flow transition
  • Heat convection of thin wires in contrast to cylinders
  • Electrical conductance of macro- and nano-circuits
  • Rubbery and glassy polymers
  • Single- and poly-crystal behavior
  • Strength of wires and round cylindrical bars
  • Uni-axial and multi-axial material: linear and non-linear response
  • Thin and thick plate behavior
  • Brittle and ductile fracture
  • Small and large crack growth behavior
  • Low and high temperature effects
  • Local and global material property characteristics
  • Small and large bodies: size and time effects
  • Specimen and structure
