The results of recent studies on strengthening and hardening mechanisms for micro/nano structured materials indicate that the use of only one type of energetic or dissipative description may be insufficient to accurately describe the size effects exhibited in metallic components. Therefore, it is important to incorporate more than one description of the thermodynamic processes into the modeling in order to have a better understanding of the hardening and strengthening mechanisms for micro/nano structured materials.
