This book features selected manuscripts presented at ICoNSoM 2019, exploring cutting-edge methods for developing novel models in nonlinear solid mechanics. Innovative methods like additive manufacturingfor example, 3D printing and miniaturization mean that engineers need more accurate techniques for modeling solid body mechanics. The book focuses on the formulation of continuum and discrete models for complex materials and systems, particularly the design of metamaterials.
Presents cutting-edge methods for novel models in nonlinear solid mechanics
Focuses on the design of metamaterials

Bilen Emek Abali is after studying and working at the universities in Istanbul, Munich, Berlin, and Berkeley, currently, B. E. Abali is working as an affiliated researcher at the Ghent University in Belgium. A rigorous scientific and teaching expertise he has obtained over the years as a consequence of working and lecturing in several continents. Among others, he has sponsored courses in mechanics, composite materials, numerical methods, and multiphysics simulations. His first research monograph has been published in Springer entitled as Computational Reality, presenting thermodynamical derivation of coupled phenomena involving thermomechanics with electromagnetism in solid bodies and fluids as well as their computation via the finite element method with the aid of open-source codes developed under the FEniCS project.
