Journal description

The Journal of Composite Materials is the leading journal of advanced composite materials technology and is ranked number one by the ISI Journal Citation Report by impact factor for materials science, composites. Topics include theoretical and experimental findings on the physical and structural properties of high performance, multiphase materials. Both phenomenological and mechanistic approaches and their interrelations are emphasized. Fracture, fatigue, structural reliability, and design criteria are given special attention. Applications of advanced composites are now increasing in military, industrial and consumer products. The Journal of Composite Materials, continues to be the leading medium for composite materials technology transfer.
