"A team from Germany presented a review of Al-rich TiAl alloys, analysing scientific literature and discussing recent advances and current understanding of this class of materials. These intermetallics with a unique set of physical and mechanical properties are suitable for high-temperature (up to 800°C) structural applications in aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines, etc. The main focus of this review is on their constituent phases, microstructure, deformation mechanisms and mechanical behaviour. Also, a micromechanical crystal-plasticity-based modelling approach is employed to assess plastic anisotropy of a single crystal of Ti-61.8at.%Al." Vadim Silberschmidt, Editor-in-chief.

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
