About this Research Topic
Nanomaterials like GSs and CNTs are interesting materials due to their prominent properties, such as high mechanical strength, thermal and electrical conductivities, molecular barrier abilities and sensitivity to magnetic field. Because of these outstanding characteristics, nanomaterials have been employed as the significant ingredients of different applications in micro/nano-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS), biomedical, nanocomposites and so on. Hence, behavioral analysis of nanostructures is crucial for their engineering design and construction.
Although numerous works have been carried out by researchers on the static response of nanomaterials, there are a few studies on the dynamic behavior. The highlighted themes of this Research Topic should include dynamic behavior of GS/CNT-reinforced nanocomposites within multiphysics environments by means of analytical or numerical methods.
Owing to the exceptional properties of nanomaterials, the application of them is swiftly growing in various engineering applications and various engineering fields, such as nanotransistors, energy harvesting, nanoprobes, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and solar cells, in which the structures may be exposed to suddenly time-dependent loads yielding to transient oscillations. Since considering the internal and external damping, thermal environment, and magnetic field, can be utilized as a parametric controller to prevent the resonance condition, it is better to consider these factors in the dynamic response. The presented Research Topic can be a significant step in design of GS/CNT-reinforced nanomaterials, hence it’s meaningful to scrutinize the dynamic stability and transient response of these nanomaterials under multiphysics environment, in order to fill the gap by providing the theoretical results for future studies in nanodevices.
The Research Topic scope can include, but is not limited to, the following areas:
• Static and dynamic responses of GSs/ CNTs and reinforced nanocomposites;
• Static and dynamic behaviors of functionally graded (FG) nanomaterials;
• Investigation of mechanical behavior in viscoelastic materials.
