Aims and scope

Mechanics of Composite Materials is a peer-reviewed international journal that encourages publication of original experimental and theoretical research on the mechanical properties of composite materials and their constituents including, but not limited to:

§ damage, failure, fatigue, and long-term strength;

§ methods of optimum design of materials and structures;

§ prediction of long-term properties and aging problems;

§ nondestructive testing;

§ mechanical aspects of technology;

§ mechanics of nanocomposites;

§ mechanics of biocomposites;

§ composites in aerospace and wind-power engineering;

§ composites in civil engineering and infrastructure

§ and other composites applications.

The Journal, founded by the Latvian Academy of Science in 1965, is issued in Russian as Mekhanika Kompozitnykh Materialov at the University of Latvia, Riga, and is published in English by Springer Science + Business Media, Inc.

The Russian Volume Year is published in English from April. All articles are peer-reviewed
