Aims and scope

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

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
