This volume presents a comprehensive system for categorizing carbon nanotubes and their modifications in terms of nano sheets, nanotubes, microscopic and atomic modifications. In addition, the material and geometric properties of these nano-configurations are addressed. Lastly, it introduces a number of common software packages for geometry generation and several commercial finite element programs.

Andreas Öchsner, born 1970, is Full Professor in the Department Solid Mechanics and Design at the University of Technology Malaysia (UTM), Malaysia and Head of the Advanced Materials and Structure Lab. Having obtained a Diploma Degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Stuttgart (1997), Germany, he spent the time from 1997-2003 at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg as a research and teaching assistant to obtain his Doctor of Engineering Sciences (Dr.-Ing.). From 2003-06, he worked as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Head of the Cellular Metals Group affiliated with the University of Aveiro, Portugal. His research interests are related to experimental and computational mechanics, cellular metals and thin structures and interphases. His research activities were recognised in 2010 by the award of a higher doctorate degree (D.Sc.) by the University of Newcastle, Australia.Inhalt
