Nano Mechanics

Nano mechanics is a branch of Nano science studying important mechanical (elastic, thermal and kinetic) properties of physical systems at the nanometer scale. Nano mechanics has looked as if on the crossroads of classical mechanicssolid-state physicsstatistical mechanicsmaterials science, and quantum chemistry. As an area of Nano science, Nano mechanics provides a scientific basis of nanotechnology. Nano mechanics is based on some experimental principles (basic observations), specifically general mechanics principles and specific principles arising from the smallness of physical sizes of the object of study. These principles serve to offer a basic insight into novel mechanical properties of nanometer objects. Novelty is understood in the sense that these properties are not present in similar macro scale objects or much different from the properties of those (e.g., Nano rods vs. usual macroscopic beam structures). In particular, compactness of the subject itself gives growth to various surface effects determined by higher surface-to-volume ratio of nanostructures and thus affects mechanoenergetic and thermal properties (melting point, heat capacitance, etc.) of nanostructures.
