Interfaces/interphases/surfaces play an essential role in determining the mechanical behavior, structural integrity, and the lifespan of a wide variety of materials and structures.
Problems concerning interface and surface engineering (design, modeling, characterization, manufacturing, etc.) are often multi-scale and multi-physics (e.g., coupling of mechanical and environmental conditions). The fields concerned are countless, ranging from the transport industry to the structure and infrastructure industries and the biomedical industry.
Although a lot of progress has been achieved, the research field is still growing and diversifies in many directions. Contributions concerning theoretical, numerical, and experimental aspects are welcome from scientists working in different fields of material science and mechanics of materials and structures.

This session is devoted to recent developments on the various aspects of interface mechanics.
Topics to be covered include but are not limited to the following:
  • Multi-scale (nano-micro-macro models) and multi-physics (thermo, piezo, magneto, etc.) modeling of interphases, thin films, and surfaces;
  • Contact mechanics: unilateral contact, sliding, friction, adhesion, viscosity, fretting, wear, peeling, debonding, rolling contact, biomechanics;
  • Deformation, damage, fracture, and other dissipative processes at interfaces;
  • Homogenization procedures and non-linear heterogeneous structures;
  • Computational methods: isogeometric analysis, contact discretization, advanced finite element methods for interfaces and surfaces modeling;
  • Recent developments for interface and surface design;
  • Recent developments of adhesively bonding technology and materials;
  • Mathematical advances;
  • Industrial applications involving interface and contact conditions.
