Special Issue "Advances in Micro- and Nanomechanics"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
It is my pleasure to announce the launch of a new Special Issue of the journal Nanomaterials entitled “Advances in Micro- and Nanomechanics”.
This Special Issue is devoted to recent advances in both theoretical and experimental studies of a material behavior at the micrometer and nanometer sizes. The SI includes modeling within the various continuum and discrete models. In particular, such continuum models as the surface elasticity, strain and stress gradient elasticity, and other generalized models of continua and structures are invited. Discrete models as lattice and molecular dynamics are also included. In addition, the SI considers experimental studies of such materials and structures within modern experimental techniques. Both static and dynamic analysis as well as multifield coupling are in the scope of the SI.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Title: Critical Temperatures for Vibrations and Buckling of Magneto-Electro-Elastic Nonlocal Strain Gradient Nano Plates

Abstract: An analytical method is presented in this work for the linear vibrations and buckling of nano plates in hydro-thermal environment. Nonlinear von Karman terms are included in the plate kinematics in order to consider the instability phenomena. Strain gradient nonlocal theory is considered for its simplicity and applicability with respect to other nonlocal formulations which require more parameters in their analysis. Present nano plates have a coupled magneto-electro-elastic constitutive equation in hygro-thermal environment. Nano scale effects on the vibrations and buckling behavior of magneto-electro-elastic plates is presented and hydro-thermal load outcomes are considered as well. In addition, critical temperatures for vibrations and buckling problems are analyzed and given for several nano plate configurations.
