This symposium focuses on advancing mechanistic understanding of interfacial adhesion across diverse scales and engineering applications. The major goal of this symposium is to exchange ideas and scientific advancements in modeling, simulation and experimental characterization of interfacial adhesion under different environmental conditions. This track covers a broad range of material classes including composites, layered materials, thin films, 1D and 2D materials, bio-materials, heterogeneous materials. Both experimental and computational work are encouraged.
