Size Effects in Engineering Mechanics and Manufacturing Book Excerpt:

Size Effects in Engineering Mechanics and Manufacturing provides a detailed evaluation of size effects in mechanics, manufacturing, and material sciences and their effects on related physical behaviors and phenomena from a practical perspective. The first part addresses the physical aspects of size effects including tension, compression, and bending deformation in mechanics, fatigue and damage behaviors, the mechanisms behind these effects, and outlines modelling techniques for determining the behavior and phenomena of size effects. The second part deals with the practical applications of size effects in material sciences and micro-manufacturing, and how size effects influence the process performance, process outcome, properties, and quality of fabricated parts and components. Finally, the future of size effects research is discussed, considering how to improve stability and performance, and reduce uncertainties. Size Effects in Engineering Mechanics and Manufacturing provides not only a reference volume on size effects but also valuable applications for engineers, scientists, academics, and research students involved in materials processing, manufacturing, materials science and engineering, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering and the management of enterprises using materials processing technologies in mass-production of related products. Describes the physical aspects of size effects and provides the underlying theories and principles to explain the mechanisms behind them Presents the practical applications of size effects in material sciences and micro-manufacturing, and outlines they influence the process performance, process outcome, properties, and quality of fabricated parts and components Provides guidelines to understand size effects in multi-scaled manufacturing process design and product development

Computational Modelling of Concrete and Concrete Structures Book Excerpt:

Computational Modelling of Concrete and Concrete Structures contains the contributions to the EURO-C 2022 conference (Vienna, Austria, 23-26 May 2022). The papers review and discuss research advancements and assess the applicability and robustness of methods and models for the analysis and design of concrete, fibre-reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, as well as masonry structures. Recent developments include methods of machine learning, novel discretisation methods, probabilistic models, and consideration of a growing number of micro-structural aspects in multi-scale and multi-physics settings. In addition, trends towards the material scale with new fibres and 3D printable concretes, and life-cycle oriented models for ageing and durability of existing and new concrete infrastructure are clearly visible. Overall computational robustness of numerical predictions and mathematical rigour have further increased, accompanied by careful model validation based on respective experimental programmes. The book will serve as an important reference for both academics and professionals, stimulating new research directions in the field of computational modelling of concrete and its application to the analysis of concrete structures. EURO-C 2022 is the eighth edition of the EURO-C conference series after Innsbruck 1994, Bad Gastein 1998, St. Johann im Pongau 2003, Mayrhofen 2006, Schladming 2010, St. Anton am Arlberg 2014, and Bad Hofgastein 2018.

Foreign Direct Investment in the Real and Financial Sector of Industrial Countries Book Excerpt:

A collection of papers on the determinants and consequences of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the real and financial sectors of industrial countries. The text sheds new light on the determinants of FDI, in particular the role of governmental incentives. Another main topic is the role of FDI in the east European accession countries. It provides insights into the question of whether EU enlargement will have consequences for capital flows into those countries. Since the start of European monetary union, the discussion on cross-border mergers in the European banking industry has intensified. The final part of the book contains contributions to this debate.
