Call for Papers: Special Issue on Advanced Materials: Microstructure and Performance

The aim of this Special Issue is to discuss the latest developments and trends in microstructural characterisation, advanced experimentation and computational analysis of relationships between the microstructural features of advanced engineering and natural materials and their local and global behaviour as well as its effect on performance of components and structures. A special emphasis is on multiscale and multidisciplinary approaches in analysis of various deformation, damage and fracture mechanisms and processes as well as structural changes caused by loading and environmental factors at different length and time scales.


List of Topics (include, but not limited to the following):

  • Effect of microstructure on properties and performance of advanced materials
  • Analysis of modern composites and nanocomposites
  • Analysis of biological and biomedical materials
  • Computational mechanics of advanced materials and structures
  • Failure mechanisms and damage-accumulation processes in advanced materials
  • Mechanical behaviour of materials in technological processes
  • Prediction of deformational behaviour and life-in-service of structures and components made of advanced materials
  • Optimization problems in mechanics of advanced materials and structures


Submission Deadline: September 30, 2022
