Applied Composite Materials
An International Journal for the Science and Application of Composite
This International Journal is dedicated to the publication of original
full-length papers, review articles and short communications of the highest
quality that advance the development and application of engineering
composite materials. These papers should identify problems that limit the
performance and reliability of the composite material and composite part;
and they should propose solutions to those problems that lead to innovation
in design and the successful exploitation and commercialisation of composite
materials across the widest spectrum of engineering uses.
Papers that lead to the development and the manufacture of composite
materials should focus on the quantitative descriptions of material systems
and processing routes, together with a sound understanding of the physical
processes and mechanisms that occur in the material during the shaping
Papers on the integration of composite selection and innovation in
mechanical design should discuss issues at the micro and macro levels of
structure that lead to the optimisation of composite material properties,
component performance, durability and lifetime.
Papers may include a knowledge of reactions between fibre and matrix in
processing or between composite material and environment in service. Such
understanding should be applied to the successful design and exploitation of
the composite system and the composite component. Papers will include a
knowledge of the management of time-dependent changes in microscopic and
macroscopic structure and its exploitation from the material's conception
through to its eventual obsolescence.
