Featured Article: Experimental and analytical investigation on resin impregnation behavior in continuous carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic polyimide composites

12.5.18In molding of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics (CFRTP), resin impregnation behavior to fiber yarns is very important because higher viscosity of molten thermoplastics inhibites resin impregnation to the interspace among fibers. Resultant resin un-impregnation causes lower mechanical properties of CFRTP. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relation among molding method, molding conditions and resin impregnation to fiber yarns experimentally and analytically.

Aims and Scope

The aim of Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Modern Processes is to publish and disseminate results of current analytical, experimental and numerical research in the broad area of mechanics of advanced materials, with a special emphasis on underpinning interrelations between physics of deformation, damage and fracture with mechanics of manufacturing processes.

Call for papers: Computer modelling of Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a step change in manufacturing technology. A major challenge is to control defects and residual stresses to ensure good and repeatable mechanical properties. Computer modelling based on the fundamental principles of mechanics and materials science is potentially a powerful tool to optimise additive manufacturing processes. This special issue presents some recent developments in this area and covers various topics – from overviews of theoretical schemes of continuum mechanics and microstructured materials to analysis of woven composites to biomedical applications.

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

Open access publishing is not without costs. Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Modern Processes therefore levies an article-processing charge of £580.00/$790.00/€690.00 for each article accepted for publication. 

For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

APC Paying Options

The following are the APC payment options that authors can take upon the submission to Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Modern Processes. The option has to be selected at the time of a manuscript submission and follow up actions to the selection will be take place if the review decision of the submission is decided as “Accepted for publication”. 

Option 1: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (1050 EUR per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Option 2: SpringerOpen Fee Waiver request

Authors from low income countries or from SpringerOpen Membership institutions will be able to separately request waivers or discounts in Editorial Manager.

Benefit from our free funding service

We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding.
