Scope: This special topic will focus on the mechanical properties of small-volume and low-dimensional materials, as well as bulk materials that are comprised of or are aggregates of these materials including bulk nanostructured materials and nanoscale based hierarchical materials. Of particular interest are studies that discuss sample size effects, applications of nanoscale mechanical testing and the associated characterization, as well as modeling that addresses the mechanical properties of these materials.
