Modelling low velocity impact induced damage in composite laminatescover image

Yu Shi and Constantinos Soutis, Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Modern Processes 2017 3:14

"This review paper is focused on modelling of so called barely visible damage – a result of a low-velocity impact on composite laminates. It covers some recent finite-element methods used to predict initiation and evolution of such damage both in traditional laminates and hybrid plates. Major damage models and modelling schemes are also presented; numerical results are compared with data obtained with no-destructive techniques." Vadim Silberschmidt, Editor-in-chief. Read the article

Article Processing Charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Modern Processes therefore levies an article-processing charge of £825.00/$1290.00/€1050.00 for each article accepted for publication. If the submitting author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

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.
The journal will publish original research articles of interest to applied mathematicians, physicists, materials scientists and researchers from academia and industry, as well as to R&D engineers, involved with problems of mechanics and manufacturing of advanced materials.
Authors are encouraged to submit contributions on the topics ranging from structural analysis, mechanical, microstructural and physical characterization of advanced materials to processing techniques and manufacturing of components and structures made of such materials. The following topics are relevant to contents:

  • Experimental mechanics
  • Mechanical and physical properties of advanced materials
  • Microstructure-properties relationships
  • Damage and fracture
  • Fracture mechanics and structural integrity
  • Multi-scale and multi-physics material analysis
  • Mechanics and simulation of manufacturing processes
  • Design methods
  • Materials forming
  • Manufacturing techniques and technologies
  • Structural topology
