General information

Recent advances in science and engineering allowed obtaining the novel materials with unusual mechanical properties. In many cases, these properties are mainly determined by the microstructure of the materials on small scales (micro- and nano-) rather than by the chemical and physical properties. Usually, the microstructure is obtained naturally such as in case of nanomaterials and specifically 2D-materials. However, recent progress in manufacturing techniques inspired the engineers to construct the artificial materials referred to as ‘metamaterials’. Dr Berinskii investigates a connection between the microstructure and macroscopic mechanical behavior by means of analytical and computational analysis. His aim is explaining existing unusual mechanical properties and predicting new outstanding features to be used in engineering applications.
