In this, its second corrected printing, Zohdi and Wriggers' illuminating text presents a comprehensive introduction to the subject. The authors include in their scope basic homogenization theory, microstructural optimization and multifield analysis of heterogeneous materials. This volume is ideal for researchers and engineers, and can be used in a first-year course for graduate students with an interest in the computational micromechanical analysis of new materials.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a concise, well-written book . . The author's staggering scheme with adaptive time steps, insensitive to the order in which the equations governing individual processes are solved, is described here and it is illustrated by an example. The book is suitable for a graduate course . ." (George J. Dvorak, Meccanica, Vol. 44, 2009)
