In the past decade, there have been exciting developments in understanding the mechanics of nano- and bio- structures and materials, such as biological materials and two dimensional materials. These materials have shown great potential for a wide range of engineering applications. Design of nanostructured and self-assembled materials to achieve materials with higher strength and performance for mechanical and energetic applications is currently receiving significant attention. Understanding the mechanics of these materials and their fundamental mechanisms are crucial for the design of innovative materials. This symposium will focus on the computational mechanics of nano- and bio- structures and materials, with an aim to represent the cutting edge research in materials across multiple length scales to enable the development of novel materials for a wide range of engineering applications.
